Easter week is pretty crazy here in San Juan del Sur, because it is a Nicaraguan tradition to head to the beach for “Semana Santa” (Holy Week). Our first year here, we visited a friend in Northern Nicaragua where it was much less crowded. This year we decided to stay and experience at least one Easter holiday in our home town.
Last minute I decided to plan a small Easter party at our house. I was on the fence about planning something because I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend my Sunday morning preparing for a party instead of just enjoying the day with my family. Then, one of the first things Azalea asked me in the morning was where her Easter dress was. I had to rummage through her closet for something “special” to wear. She got dressed up with “Easter shoes” on before the clock struck 7am. That settled it for me, we must do something fun for the kids.
Happily a few friends were able to come over to enjoy the day, then we headed to the Playa Hermosa for some relaxation and a cool down in the ocean.
