For people living in Costa Rica without residency, border runs are necessary every three months. I have met many people that have been living this way for years. In theory, one must remain out of Costa Rica for 72 hours, but this is rarely the case. In fact, it is not uncommon to walk into Nicaragua, enjoy a cup of coffee, and return to Costa Rica.
Honestly, I was dreading the border run. I have always wanted to explore Nicaragua but I imagined the circumstances were going to be different. We chose to visit Granada which turned out to be a lovely destination. What a charming city!
I felt as though everywhere I turned I saw beauty!
Robert had his first Coke ever (in Nicaragua, the Coke is made with real cane syrup unlike stateside where the Cokes are made with high fructose corn syrup crap).
This sums up how not fun it is to actually cross the border. See you in three months Nicaragua!
