On a cloudy day, La Costena Airlines carries me from Managua to Bluefields on the Caribbean coast as I watch the beautiful patchwork quilt of Nicaragua unfold below us. Nicaragua is about the size of New York state and the plane is about half way to the east coast.

Night Time Visitor
During the day you can occasionally see smaller Caimans, such as the tiny one shown below, in the water of the canal.
It's not until nighttime that the larger ones come out. This fella was caught about five minutes after a request from a visitor, about 30 meters from the house. The dogs are safe for another night.
