I need to specify that this was part of the trip about 2-3 weeks ago, before the big spread of COVID-19 in the Aemricas. :-)

I did drive all around the island in 2 shots: first time to south part, (around Maderas), and other to do North(,Concepcion). Like mentioned in previous blog, around Maderas, it gets bumpy, very narrow and rocky for 1-2 kilometers, at South-East part of the road.I was driving a small car, and only had to take it easy to go by.But during rainy season. I would ask locals to make sure it's safe.

The road around Concepcion is really much better, especially on the South side. So even if your gps tells you to go by North part of the road to Moyagalpa because it's shorter, it's definitively a better road on the South and faster. But to driv eto explore is different. It's very peaceful on the island and many places you'll want to stop to take pictures or relax. You see a succession of farm land, villages, forests, lake and volcano views.

I did a last activity before leaving, visit the Ojo de Agua waterhole. This is a recommended and cheap activity, (5$ US per person). Let's say that there's more there than a plain water hole. There are ropes and swings in the water hole, restaurants and bars. There are also 2 nature trails that I recommend. We arrive very early at waterhole and we were alone, enjoying the water and the peace. Next, we hiked one trail that goes through plantations, farms,

I especially like this photo that looks like views of Kilimandjaro with a giraffe or two in the front.
