San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur

Every time I do a contract I’m hoping for at least one port that I’ve never been to before, and this time it is San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua.  This is a very interesting port, as is Nicaragua, partly because it has so many volcanoes.  If it wasn’t for the volcanoes of Nicaragua the canal might never have been built in Panama.  Now, aside from the colonial charm of places like Granada, and the beautiful vistas of Lake Nicaragua, the area is of particular interest to me because this is where the proposed Nicaragua Canal being built by China is supposed to begin on the Pacific side.

Las Isletas in Lake Nicaragua, one of the areas environmentalists feel may be threatened by the proposed Nicaragua canal and the rush to begin without adequate environmental impact studies.
