NICARAGUA: €20 PER DAY
We also went to Guatemala during our world tour. François visited again in 2013. This small Central American country is still spared from mass tourism and life is very cheap. We loved the small colonial towns of Granada and León with their colourful facades. The island of Ometepe on Lake Nicaragua, the largest in Central America, is unique with its two volcanoes. The Atlantic coast offers beautiful surfing spots, while the Caribbean coast is distinguished by the unique culture of the pirate descendants. The Corn Islands are a small paradise lost in the Caribbean.
CAMBODIA: €23 PER DAY
Cambodia is best known for the incredible temple complex of Angkor. The intertwining roots of the ruins give them a unique atmosphere. But the charms of this country are not limited to Angkor. Riding a bicycle through the rice fields is a real pleasure. It is impossible to talk about Cambodia without mentioning the darkest part of its history, the Khmer Rouge period, which remains engraved in the memory of older generations.
