Something not right?

Description

We realize this is very unconventional for iOverlander but it is important nonetheless. Our Chihuahua Ducati from S&M Boiler Works was in the beginning of a round the world motorcycle trip when a tragic accident happened on Ometepe Island that took his life. He is buried here. The camping and food here are wonderful (hacienda Merida) and it is a great place to stay. If you are here stop over and say hi to Ducati under the tree to the south of the dock on the beach and add rock to the pile. He was a lover of travel and adventure.

Can still visit. The guards of the school let you in if you ask to visit the site. They are respectful and humble.

Update: it's open.
Tragically the tree has fallen down.
unfortunately, I was a little confused about the location given the original grave has been destroyed under the weight of the tree. There was no remains of the grave left and it has been presumably washed away.
I believe there was another pile started just north of the dock, at least, I assumed based on a photo here.
I have since verified the location after our visit with a dear friend Cisco who was present for the tragic death and burial.

I have spoken to a few security guards and explained to them the importance and significance of the grave.
I also built up the pile of rocks and decorated it substantial with a few plants and a wooden grave stone. However, subsequently found out it is in the wrong location. the security know think there is a dog buried in the wrong spot.

Just to clarify:
- Original grave destroyed by fallen tree and washed away.
- New monument reinforced, just north of dock and informed security.

I would no be offended if the next visitor reinstated the original grave around the fall tree and moved some of my decorations.

it was a pleasure to pay my respects to an adopted overlanding dog. especially after we left ours behind in Mexico

We heard the story from Mike and Shannon when we met them in 2017 and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit Ducati since we were passing through Nicaragua. Being the end of the rainy season Ducati’s resting place is well under water however we found him and added a few rocks…

We stopped by with our old dog Zeb and new dog Nica. Losing our furry friends on a trip is hard. We spent a moment remembering our two recent losses. So sorry that Ducati could not continue the journey with you.

We went for the coconut ice cream and it was quite the treat. We added a few rocks to Ducati's resting place and just wanted to let you know that he is still enjoying the nightly sunsets from his lakeside resting spot. We are sorry for your loss. We hope you are doing well, couldn't imagine a better spot for a memorial. Dogbless.
