Our kid is attracted to water like a homesick fish. Even before we got on the plane to come back to Nicaragua he could not stop talking about going swimming in the pool. Why he fixated so much on something that we have plenty of back in the states I’m not sure, other than his operating system runs on a 6-year-old CPU.
Our hotel (Hotel El Internacional) has a small dipping pool, but this is not sufficient for a dog paddling pro like Levi. Luckily the Mansion de Chocolate Hotel y Spa has a very nice, large pool anyone can access for a reasonable fee. You can get a day pass or even a week pass. We got a full day pass for all three of us for $15.
Additional good news is that they have a bar. And ducks. So while Levi swam we kicked back a few Victoria Classicas and tried to feed the ducks, which appeared to both please and anger them at the same time. They took the food, but bitched at us for giving it to them. Ducks. Go figure.
