Remote Nicaragua: First flight to Greytown Airport & Rio Indio Lodge

Joshua Berman, co-author of Moon Nicaragua and Living Abroad in Nicaragua, reports from the farthest reaches of the Rio San Juan, where a $12 million airstrip was recently cut out of the rainforest on the site of old Greytown. Berman has published articles about Nicaragua in The New York Times, and has served as location specialist for the Travel Channel there. In this video, “Tranquilo Traveler in Nicaragua: Greytown Airport & Rio Indio Lodge,” Berman heads to the southeast corner of the country, to The Rio Indio Lodge and Rio Indio Maiz Biological Reserve, the largest virgin lowland rainforest north of the Amazon. Music by Moisés Gadea.  Originally uploaded August, 2012.
