'''Bluefields''' is a city in on the [[Atlantico SurCarribean_Nicaragua|Carribean coast]] of [[Nicaragua]].
==Understand==
===By bus===
From [[Managua]] to [[Rama]] - about 6 hours. From Rama, take a speedboat called a "panga" to Bluefields. The boatride is about 2 hours.
There is now a dirt road from Rama to Bluefields, but there are no bus services. Bus service runs from Rama to Pearl Lagoon through Kukra River. From there you can take a panga to Bluefields
===By Boat===
There is a boat leaving [[San Juan Del Norte]] every Wednesday at 8 am to Bluefields. It s the same Boat which goes to the [[Big Corn Island]] and [[Little Corn Island]]. There are pangas from Bluefields to and from: Rama, San Juan de Nicaragua (del Norte), Pearl Laggon, Haulover, Kukra River, Tasbapouni, La Cruz de Rio Grande, Karawala, Sandy Bay and El Bluff
==Get around==
==See==
* '''The Moravian Church''', one block north of the docks.
* '''El Bluff''', village on an island 9 km from Bluefields. Walk through the village and you end up on a very long sand beach facing the Caribean Sea. Pangas leave from the docks as soon as there are 12 people. Last return at 5:30 pm.
* '''Laguna de Perlas''', beach up north, pangas leave in the morning for 150,000 cordobas.
==Do==
*Go to '''Four brothers''' Th-Su.
*Ask Roy at the '''Lobster Pot Hotel''' to take you to his farm.
*Enjoy a Tona Cervesa at the balcony of the '''Cima club''' while you watch the rain slam the street in July.
*Order the Camarones cocktail at the '''Bella Vista''' restaurant on the water.*Bluefields has a great local sports culture. Ask if there is anything going on in the '''Stadium ''' and you may get a chance to see an electricly charged event of local atheletic athletic talent. * '''Palo de Mayo''', a month long festival culminating during the 3rd week of May that showcases the mix of english and creole cultures.
==Learn==
Learn to speak "miskitoMiskito". Learn how to eat turtle. Learn to walk slow and smile.
==Work==
==Eat==
*''rondonRondon'' - a coconut stew made with coconut milk yuca, platains and lobster, fish, beef, or chicken.*''Vigorón'' - a mid-morning snack made with yuca, chicharones (fried pork skin) or flores (fried pork meat with chicharón) and cabbage salad (cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, vinegar, salt & pepper).*''Frito'' - an evening meal made with [[tajada]] (fried green [[plantain]]), stewed chicken or pork, and cabbage salad. *Order the Camarones cocktail at the '''Bella Vista''' restaurant on the water.
===Budget===
*'''Lobster Pot Hotel'''. If you are there for more than a couple of nights tell Roy that you want a room for 100 cordobas a night, he will give it to you (instead of 150).
*If you are a little too snobby for the Lobster Pot you probably should have just gone straight to Corn Island, :) but you can stay at the "mini hotel" by the Cima Club. the rooms are great with cable TV and your own bathroom.
* For a little more then then Lobster Pot but less the rest with clean and friendly conditions(your own Bthroom and Cable TV) is Hotel Campel, Near Mangito Lane all the taxis know where it is.

==Stay safe==
when When traveling at night always take a taxi, especially around "Four Brothers". After 20 it is recommended you take a taxi. After 22. Always taxi. Do not carry more money than necessary. Do not flash expensive items (such as cameras) around. Use common sense. Don't go into small alleys.
