Nicaragua vacations mean a land of volcanoes, lakes, unexplored territory and welcoming locals.
Since Nicaragua has emerged later than its neighbors as a tourism destination, only now are people discovering the astonishing things to see. Not only are the natural sights fascinating, but a cultural history that includes petroglyphs, ruins and colonial architecture dating back to the early 1500s, including the largest cathedral in Central America, is something else. That history of the colonial city of Granada continues in a contrast of the influence of the first arrivals to the bustling markets of today.
If volcanoes intrigue you, how about not one but two? In Masaya National Park you can see two large volcanoes and five craters where you can get up close to flowing lava and take in views of the striking blue waters of a deep crater lake. Or maybe a nature reserve surrounding a volcano, full of flora and fauna suits you? Or how about a visit by boat to a volcanic island, created by two volcanoes towering above? Nicaragua has the uniqueness of having two coastlines and the second largest lake in Latin America and Lake Nicaragua with its 350 lush tropical islands is spectacular. This plus coffee plantations, cloud forests and deserted beaches give you the chance to make Nicaragua your new favorite place to be.
- Nicaragua's south pacific coast has that small beach-town feel where you can surf, scuba, go horseback riding, relax in a hammock or get to know some local people.
- You can eat fresh fish for dinner, listen for howler monkeys and if it's the right season, observe sea turtles nesting at night.
- Watch the sky light up as the sun goes down over the Pacific - Nicaraguan sunsets rival any other.
- Experience ecolodges hidden in acres of preserved forests and beaches there for your exploration, knowing you are making a contribution to vital reforestation and community development projects.
