Nicaragua

 


1 2 3 4 5


Central America’s largest country, also named “the land of seas and volcanoes”, Nicaragua is full of contrasts: stunning beaches in both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, historical colonial cities founded by the Spanish Conquistadors 500 years ago, large lakes that host hundreds of islands, lush cloud forests, active volcanoes, native villages, folklore, traditions and markets, with humble, warm and welcoming people. As tourism is still relatively new, the country has a more “authentic” flair than its southern neighbor Costa Rica. Infrastructure is also more limited and challenging although now developing, from rustic Eco lodges to more upscale yet characterful properties, which are now flourishing in the main touristy areas, and new areas are also getting discovered. Safety is similar to the one found in Costa Rica or Panama, according to many studies and to our 15 years of experience of life in Nicaragua! Travelers may be surprised, but many, many guests have sent us after their trip to Nicaragua, notes like: “We enjoyed Nicaragua more than Costa Rica because it wasn’t as touristy, perhaps more authentic. Now is a good time to visit as I’m sure that is bound to change as tourism increases”.

All this makes it the perfect place for more adventurous travelers looking for an authentic and unique experience. So what are you waiting for?
