nicaragua

Nicaragua is the largest nation in Central America and owing to its lack of mainstream tourism remains a perfect destination for the discerning traveller who enjoys a more off the beaten track experience.

Volcanoes, picturesque lakes and vast expanses of pristine rainforest are all part of this country's natural beauty. The highlands shoot up mountain peaks and are the origin of high quality coffee beans and a variety of wildlife.

Granada is situated on the vast Lake Nicaragua and is the oldest city in the country dating back to 1524. The streets are laid out in the foothills of Mombacho volcano with many noteworthy buildings like the neo-classical cathedral, the Church of La Merced, and the fortress church of San Francisco.

Nicaragua has stunning low key beaches on the Pacific coast including El Coco, Marsella and Ocotal. Excellent surfing can be found at San Juan del Sur and close by is the country's most important turtle nesting ground at La Flor. Poneloya and Las Penitas are both fantastic little beach towns and you can also visit the Juan Venado Island which is flanked by mangrove forest and offers a great habitat for many animals, including thousands of birds and many crocodiles.

Leon is the cultural city and its most famous son is the poet and diplomat Ruben Dario, whose former home is now a visitor museum. Twelve colonial churches are dotted throughout the city along with the Cathedral of Leon which is the largest in Central America.
