Nicaragua



Nicaragua is a country full of ecological wonders, rich culture and dynamic history. It is the largest country in Central America and home to the world’s greatest concentration of inland waters, plentiful rainforest, and striking beaches. Nearly one-fifth of Nicaragua is forest reserves filled with toucans, parrots, monkeys and iguanas in a land of more than 50 volcanoes (two of which make up the Island of Ometepe, a current candidate to be designated as one of the world’s wonders).


“Nicaragua’s rich history adds to the allure of this beautiful understated culture.”


Nicaragua’s dynamic history and culture complement these natural wonders to offer you a unique adventure into a new culture. A history of colonialism, revolution and recovery have sculpted a unique society with a deep sense of pride and value for family. Historically one of Central America’s poorest countries, increased foreign investment and an environmentally sensitive effort to capitalize on its ecological attractions has made Nicaragua an increasingly popular destination in Central America.
