Nicaragua

The largest country in Central America, Nicaragua is much less explored than neighbouring Costa Rica.  A land of extraordinary natural beauty, it is home to six active volcanoes, the largest area of rainforest north of the Amazon and miles of coastline dotted with sandy beaches.

There are elegant colonial towns like Granada and Leon to explore, with pastel-painted churches and vibrant local festivals.  The Nicas, as the locals are known, are innately proud, applying a vibrant palette of colour to houses, market stalls, restaurants and plazas.

Other highlights include Nicaragua’s breathtaking assortment of birdlife; the pristine beaches of San Juan del Sur; the cloud forests and ecolodges that dot the Pacific coast; the smoking crater of the Masaya volcano; and Lago Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America, home to an archipelago of some 300 islands.

December to April is our favourite period to visit.  Speak to one of our specialists to discover more.
