I have added a new forum called Regional to A42 with, so far, sub-forums for CA-4, Central America and The Americas. While the Where? section was initially set up for only country-specific items it is clear that there needs to be a place for regional information as well.

Question about CityPark rides

Every year in mid September CityPark comes to Ocotal. It's a number of rides for kids, but the quality is much better than the rides that come here a month earlier for the Fiestas Patronales.

I used to take my housekeeper's kids and nephews to CityPark, and we all enjoyed it. Unfortunately for me, I'm no longer in Nicaragua in September. Last year I gave my housekeeper money to go in my absence, but I miss watching the kids having fun there. My housekeeper thinks that after Ocotal, CityPark goes further north into Honduras.
