During my time in Esteli, Nicaragua I took a day trip to the town of Somoto, which is known for itâ€™s famous six-kilometer canyon. Tourists and locals alike can take trips down the canyon where you must hike and swim (with a life vest) to make it through. Here are a few shots from my trek through Somoto Canyon, and, as always, you can click the photos to enlarge them.
At one point in the canyon you must either climb a steep decline or jump from this point down into the water. You can jump from two meters, four meters, eight meters, or ten. I chose ten, and as soon as I left the ground I could immediately see rocks that I hadnâ€™t been able to see before my jump. It was the longest three seconds of my life. I landed safely, but with a racing heart.
