Panorama of the Week: Sunset on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast

A long horizon, inky waters and waning light.  What is it about all this that delivers a sense of peace and perspective, of one’s small place in this world? The rhythm of the waves serves as a sort of meditative mantra, keeping petty stresses and worries in their place, at bay.

We recently arrived at this spot on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast, and ended our first day at Morgan’s Rock gazing out over this. Open up the panorama below to full screen to enjoy a bit of this experience at home.

    @Jenna: You couldn’t be more right. It is an incredibly relaxing place. Just what we needed after the last few hectic months…and dropping temperatures in Central Europe.

    @Sabastian: I thought this panorama might make you a bit jealous :) Don’t worry, we’ll be back in Berlin and it’s short days soon enough. So until then, we’re soaking in all the sunshine and warmth that we can!

    @Pablo: This is our second visit to Nicaragua and it’s been really fun returning to see new areas and also see places we visited almost 4 years ago with different eyes. The country is surprisingly beautiful.

    Some really great photos of Nicaragua. It looks like a beautiful place, but unfortunately not somewhere I’ve ever been.

    Beautiful! There’s nothing better than watching a nice sunset on the beach….well apart from watching a nice sunset on the beach with a cold beer in your hand 😉

    It looks lovely there! I keep seeing your pictures and facebook and thinking the same! I’m hoping to go traveling in just over a year and Central America is most defiantly on the list, this just adding to my inspiration!

    Have a fabulous time!

    Just gorgeous! I just spent about a month in Nicaragua and loved every minute of it. There’s so much diversity in the country, from volcanoes and mountains, to colonial architecture, to the Pacific and Caribbean. What a great country!

    @Gemma: Glad we can add to the inspiration and wanderlust for your upcoming trip! Nicaragua’s nature is pretty incredible – the coast, lakes and volcanoes. Guatemala is pretty great as well. Lots to do in this part of the world!

    @Christy: So you know exactly what we mean when we say there’s no sunset quite like a Nicaraguan sunset. It was like Mother Nature was putting on a show every night. And the people in Nicaragua are so friendly. Glad you had such a great time!

    @Lane: Thanks!
