Twain was there and described the San Juan River Jungle
famous writer was there in 1866...Was GOLD
RUSH TIME, Pioners were using the San Juan River to cross the
Central America Istmus, more than 100 000 of them passed there Going
" Another event of the voyage was crossing the Nicaragua
Isthmus — the trip across the lake and down the San Juan River —
a brand-new experience, between shores of splendid tropic tangle,
gleaming with vivid life. The luxuriance got into his note-book.
Dark grottos, fairy festoons, tunnels, temples, columns, pillars,
towers, pilasters, terraces, pyramids, mounds, domes, walls, in
endless confusion of vine-work — no shape known to architecture
unimitated — and all so webbed together that short distances
within are only gained by glimpses. Monkeys here and there; birds
warbling; gorgeous plumaged birds on the wing, Paradise itself, the
imperial realm of beauty — nothing to wish for to make it perfect."
