MOST Magazine Fashion MAY-JUNE'15 ISSUE NO.9 - Page 184

Where to stay: Inside the walled city What to see: Vibrant graffiti around the city screams of national pride and adds pops of color to dark neighborhoods; visit the Totumo Volcano to soak and swim in volcanic mud. Enjoy a huge portion of Churrasco and rice for under $5. Where to avoid: The local beaches – they’re mostly made of rock, not sand, someone comes around every ten seconds trying to sell you something, no towels or lounge chairs are readily available and you have to keep an eagle eye on your stuff or it will get stolen. What to eat: Fresh fish brought in daily from the coast and fresh fruit from street vendors. What to bring: Haggling skills for dealing with taxi drivers, a reservation for a place with air conditioning, small bills for buying fried street food, Pepto-Bismol for after eating fried street food. 184 || FAS HI O N M A G A Z I N E || MAY / JUNE 2015
