Most memorable experience? - Seeing the eruption of volcano El Fuego at Antigua - though from a distance - but we still saw the red lava. The unspoilt Pacific Coast near Leon with the turtle conservation centre and sunset beach. The jungle Chaa Creek resort with the toucans. The wonderful city of Leon.
