Amazing restaurant in North Dakar. There is a menu of 1 meal each day and will cost 1000CFA. Oumy is the lady in charge and she is lovely. Honestly some of the best Senegalese food I have eaten and the atmosphere is lovely. Definitely worth giving this place a look.

loud as expected. but nothing crazy. standard walmart lot, stayed one night, no issues.
We went there to replace the solar batteries in our motorhome. Dario, who speaks English well, and his team are very professional. Because we needed a special size of battery, they had non on stock but could organize them quickly. Fair price, recommended.

We paid for our double room 430P/night, breakfast and IVA included. Because this is the cheapest room (no.101), it's close to the guest car port and therefore can be noisy.

Hey guys, I wanted to give a quick update from crossing the border: Costa Rica into Nicaragua.
Leaving Costa Rica:
The exit costs nothing except for the 8$.
1. at first drive past a blue "tower" on the right. There you have to show your ID and the Corona PCR test. You also get a customs document. Then you continue to the right. Follow the signs and the road marking "vehiculo liviano".
Just give everything to the customs employee and answer the usual questions.
We didn't need any copies for us or for the TIP for the car and they didn't ask for any copies (I would still just
13. Everything is done and you can enter Nicaragua.
For us, everything took about 3 hours but was very stress-free. Only dollars are accepted at the border (remember to bring the 13$ pP for the entry suitable, they do not have change). Also, we were not asked about the email to the government and the online Travel registration, but I would still advise to fill everything out in case they want to give you a hard time. Furthermore, also no helpers/fixers were there and no one approached us (Thursday, 8:30 am), so it really was pretty relaxed for us.
TIP: about 50-80 meters behind the insurance "building" you can make copies of everything you just got. We copied the TIP, the insurance and the rodaje (6 copies 1$).
I have marked some tips and locations on the map and attached them. Unfortunately iOverlander decreases the quality of the images, so if you need the images in better quality, feel free to reach out to us on Instagram: palms.and.pinetrees

One hour and ten minutes to clear customs and immigration on a Thursday morning with a bit of a line-up. First, you will be checked for PCR and vaccinations. We know we made mistakes for the on-line declaration but they corrected it for us. TIP process was easy but you must have insurance. No check of vehicle.

Long drive up some dirt roads. Couple rough sections but nothing crazy. Made it up in a promaster. Camp site is on a forest road at the top of a mountain. I camped in the middle of the road because it dead ended just past me and I could see it had little to no recent traffic. Perfect sunset spot with beautiful views to the east. Good Verizon service.

Honest guy whom you can trust. I stopped by because my RV was making noise and he took care of it without charging me. It just needed steering fluid. I wanted to give him my business so I asked him to go ahead and change my oil but he said he was too busy for new customers right now. As busy as he was he still took the time out to make sure I got back on the road.

As described. However there is a sign reading no camping with a picture of a tent and an RV. This trailhead is not legal for overnighting unfortunately.

Good hot shower! There is a jar in the office for using the shower when no staff is present
Worth the 4$

Stayed here for total 6 nights. We felt safe because there is a food truck on the same street. Usually quiet at light but there are days (I think Wedensdays) when they clean the street at 4AM. Usually full during the day so come before 7AM or after 9PM to find parking.

for motorcycles they let us board at 3pm. They charged 93 pesos for the ramp fee (I did get a receipt). IMPORTANT: they do not have tie downs on the boat. I was lucky that some bikers had extra. Best to buy some cheap ones before you get here

A county campground above a river. $25 for dry camping, $35 for hook-ups. $55 for yurt. They only accept CASH unless you reserve online in advance (for an additional fee) so bring exact change! Flush toilets and showers acceptably clean. No view of the river from sites (except for #41 and the yurt) but a short walk down to the day use area by the river. Not much privacy between sites but there were only two other people here in early Dec. Overall a beautiful location.
Verizon service was iffy - sometimes I could load websites, sometimes I couldn't even send a text.
If you have a little extra time and not too wide of a rig, take N. Bank Road back to the freeway. Beautiful drive.

Quite big campsite behind this historical hotel that’s established in 1923. Hepburn, Bogart and Hemingway have all stayed here. Good hot shower. No kitchen facilities. 25 000 UGX/pppn. Right beside the road, so some traffic noise in inevitable. Just look carefully where you park, we had one big tree branch fall just beside our Landy, took a hit in the edge of our awning, but luckily did no damages.

Amazing guesthouse just outside of the busy part of Arusha. Clean rooms in a quiet area and an incredible spacious garden out back to relax in. Kitchen available for use. Hot water for shower. Laundry and a huge/delicious breakfast available for extra cost. Guesthouse is around a 30 minute walk to the main square, part of it is on a dirt road but it’s easy to navigate if you contact the owner beforehand. Owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. We arrived by bicycle and they were very helpful. This place is paradise if you are wanting a quiet house that feels like home to relax while still being close enough to main part of town.
