Summary
Neil Gibson travels to Central America to visit the affluent country of Costa Rica and the politically volatile nation of Nicaragua in this Globe Trekker episode. In the Costa Rican capital San Jose, he follows the election, goes dancing at a Merengue club, and visits volunteers battling local poverty. He rides with a Harley tour to a wildlife haven boasting the largest number of different bird species in the world before relaxing near hot volcanic springs, going to a bull fiesta in Liberia, and lounging on the Pacific Coast in Montezuma. In Nicaragua, Neil hunts in the jungle and eats roasted rat for dinner while learning about the revolution. He plays baseball, tastes locally brewed rum, tours a cigar factory in Granada, and visits the Heroes and Martyrs Museum and Peace Park in Managua. Finally, Neil treks four hours to the edge of Volcan Masaya, known by the Spanish as the mouth of hell.
