A Memorable Monkey Sanctuary Day Trip to Puerto Barillas

First and foremost, welcome to the final blog post of my El Salvador series! If you have read all of my #INElSalvador posts, we did it, Joe. I decided that it was only appropriate to end this series with the highlight of the trip, the monkey sanctuary. This encounter has become one of my top 3 travel experiences. Of course, I have seen monkeys on various occasions, but never like this. Never so close. And never so, free. Let’s rewind.

Bucket List Things: 12 AM Swimming on a Private Beach in Teotepeque

The sea, the ocean, extensive bodies of water, they’re breathtaking sites but terrifying. Though it may appear as if I’m continuously doing some water-related activity, the reality is, I’m incredibly dreadful of massive bodies of water. The fact that the majority of water is undiscovered, the strength of the current, and combine that with me being unable to swim? It’s a recipe for disaster. But, I’m that individual who attempts everything once. At least.

Café La Casona San Benito Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’m beginning to feel as if it’s habitual for me to start each post with something along the lines of, “this visit came unexpectedly.” But did I lie? On our final day in El Salvador, we dropped off my sister at the airport. As we were up early, with two hours of driving under our belt, our stomachs were on E. The four of us proceeded to a hotel buffet-style breakfast. Of course, we were uninterested. It was still early, and restaurants nearby remained closed. We began to view various alternatives, taking into account the drive to the food.

Cue the Birthday Antics: Spending 25 in Teotepeque, El Salvador

I can’t believe two months have passed. But, I’m finally writing about my birthday antics in El Salvador with my ladies. This birthday meant a lot as I had every intention of visiting 25 countries by 25 years old. Here I was in my 25th country celebrating with genuine friends. So it started off a little something like this…

La Pampa Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

By the five stars above, you can guess the direction of this review. Once in a while, I find myself seriously craving the meals that I had at this restaurant. Yes, it’s one of those. Not only a restaurant but an experience in and of itself. Initially, we stumbled upon this restaurant accidentally. The experience was astounding. I ended up canceling my birthday dinner reservation and heading back to La Pampa once more. I’ve broken down the restaurant review into three categories: atmosphere, food, and drinks. Here goes!

El Salvador Series: Four-Hour Hike To and From Santa Ana Volcano

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I told them, I swear I did. My friends downplay how adventurous I tend to be. I warned them that this wouldn’t be one of those cute girl trips where we sit by the beach or pool and do nothing but drink and take selfies. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But, you can do that, anywhere.
