Nicaragua

Nicaragua is often referred to as “the land of lakes and volcanoes” because of its chain of volcanoes. that runs from the north to the south along the country’s Pacific side and the high number of lakes. The biological diversity and warm tropical climate make Nicaragua a popular tourist destination. With misty volcanos, gorgeous beaches, and dense rainforests, Nicaragua has much to offer.

You can fill your trip with a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, swimming and zip lining. If you want a more laid back vacation, you can go to the Corn Islands for some nightlife and lying out on the beach.

Want to see some incredible wildlife? Take a boat into the Indio Maiz Biological Reserve, the largest area of untouched rainforest north of the Amazon. Check out León or Granada for colonial architecture and local attractions. Have a cup of Nicaraguan coffee and enjoy the scenery while you’re soaking up the country’s culture and history.
