Except for the two weeks I stayed with a family in Managua, my base for my two months in Nicaragua was the Viva Nicaragua Hotel in Ticuantepe. Ticuantepe is a quiet, suburban/rural town that is increasingly a bedroom community for workers who commute into Managua. Buses and microbuses running to the Capital from the outlying towns of Jinotepe, La Concepcion, San Marcos, La Borgoña, and Ticuantepe passed by the La Gloria subdivision (i.e. grouping of about eight houses separated by grazing cows and plantain trees) about every five minutes during the morning rush hour. Basically a quiet guesthouse with four rooms, the hotel was a great place to relax, go for a swim in the pool, cook for myself, and practice my Spanish with the caretakers and fellow Spanish students.
