A more non-touristy, off the beaten path destination, Nicaragua is a small corner of paradise in the heart of Central America, located on the border with Costa Rica and Honduras. It is termed the "Land of lakes and volcanoes,” as well as being known for their diving, cigars, coffee plantations, turtles and amazing beaches. A truly ideal place for lovers of ecological recreation and sea-based activities. The country has more than 50 volcanoes, some dormant and others, like the Masaya Volcano, which is still very much active. Venturing up a volcano is one of the most unique hikes one can take, and for the more adventurous, experience the thrill of “volcano boarding” to get you back down- sliding down the black rubble of a volcano on a board, with incredible views of all the surrounding volcanoes around you. The beaches of Nicaragua allow not only to indulge in some relaxation, but also for some world-class surfing, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. But Nicaragua is most famous for its surf culture, and the beautiful Popoyo Beach is an ideal spot for beginners and the more advanced alike, having plenty of wave breaks for both, and is a great place to take surfing lessons. The country's most famous surf beaches are Remanso (ideal for beginners), Maderas (for the more experienced), Las Peñitas near Leon, and Colorado Beach. There are many surf camps, cafes, bars and yoga schools in Nicaragua. Marsella Beach is ideal for a family holiday, and for a more secluded scene Playa el Coco and Majagual Beach are ideal. You can fish, surf and go for long walks along the mangroves of Jiquilillo Beach, one of the longest Pacific beaches in Central America. The Corn Islands are a must-see, with their stunning and pristine beaches, and few tourists around- you will feel like you’ve escaped to a private island in the Caribbean. These islands are popular for diving, with excellent reefs off both islands. Big Corn Island is actually quite small, and you can bike around it in about an hour. And it is just a 40-minute boat ride to Little Corn Island, and you can walk around the island in less than an hour. Among the cities of Nicaragua, Granada is especially worth noting for its unique charm and colonial style, street food and interesting shopping. The smaller cities of Granada and Leon are very charming and known for their colorful architecture and churches- like the standout, stark white Leon Cathedral, the largest in Central America, with great views of the city below. And in this area is the largest freshwater lake in Central America, Lake Nicaragua, with its hundreds of islands, including some with fantastic eco-lodges. And while in this area you will want to visit the Islets of Granada, where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards or take a boat tour around the little islands. Some are deserted, some have upscale private vacation homes, and some have charming eco-lodges, and there are plenty of native and migratory birds and also monkeys to be on the watch for. The island Isla El Pirata has a restaurant and a bar as well as a play area for children, and the islands of Pico de Garza and El Cifar are also good options, and you can visit the San Pablo Fortress on another island, built between 1670 and 1685, to defend the colonial city from pirate invasion. Or visit Ometepe Island, formed by the two connected volcanoes, the larger of the two still active. This island has been declared a protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for its lush wetlands and tropical rainforests. One of the most beautiful beaches on the Pacific coast and popular for its surfing is Playa Escameca, and easily accessible if you’re staying around the area of San Juan del Sur. This beach has services available such as restaurants serving local delicacies like fish tacos, ceviche, and cocktails. On Playa Escameca surfing is very popular for its alluring beach break and surf school on location. And the south end of the beach has an estuary, home to a vast array of bird species, fish and monkeys. Rent paddle boards from the surf school and paddle up the estuary in search of local wildlife. And if this isn’t enough, during turtle nesting season, a local NGO releases tens of thousands of endangered sea turtles into the sea from their hatchery just before sunset, which is incredibly special to witness.

Bordered by Costa Rica on the South and Honduras on the North, Nicaragua is the largest Central American republic. The vast Pacific Ocean forms her western border, the balmy Caribbean Sea the east. Is is a warm and friendly land of lakes and mountains; rivers and volcanoes, sea and sun. The country is divided into three geographic regions: the Pacific Lowlands on the west, the mountainous Central Region and the Atlantic Lowlands on the east.
Spanish is spoken by 90% of the country's population. The black population of the east coast region has English as their first language. Several indigenous people of the east still use their original language, the main languages being Miskito language, Sumo language, and Rama language.
Nicaragua has a tropical climate, alternating between two seasons: rainy and dry (winter and summer). This is the result of its geographic location between 11 and 15 degrees latitude north and the humidity from both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans which give it a fairly stable season.
In the Central Region the rainy season lasts from May to October. The dry season occurs from November through April. During December the weather is more temperate. The warmest months are March, April and May, Nicargua's "sea season".
The climate in the Atlantic Coast has been said to have the highest temperature and humidity. The temperature in this region corresponds to that in tropical jungles and ranges above 89° F.
The gastronomy of Nicaragua is very rich and varied. Meat -whether roast, stewed or marinated with aromatic herbs- and vegetables are the principal ingredients of the majority of tempting Nicaraguan dishes

Some of the most popular culinary specialties include "Nacatamal", a delicious combination of meat and corn paste; "Vigorón", a blend of yucca with pork and salad; and "Vaho", a tasty dish containing plantains, yucca and meat. You can try these dishes and other examples of national and international cuisine at various restaurants in the region.
Nicaragua has its own currency: the córdoba. The US dollar is also virtually everywhere accepted. Often prices are based on dollars but quoted in córdobas. If you pay in dollars, you will receive your change in córdobas.
1 USD = 32,8 Cordobas (March 2019)
Nicaragua, which name is derived from the chief of the area's leading Indian tribe at the time of the Spanish Conquest, was settled by the Spanish in 1522. The country won independence in 1838. For the next century, Nicaragua's politics were dominated by the competition for power between the Liberals and the Conservatives.
Over 90% of Nicaragua's population is members of Christian denominations. Approximately 73% of Nicaraguans follow the Roman Catholic religion.

The popularity of the religion in Nicaragua is clearly seen in yearly festivals held throughout Nicaragua in honor of the patron saints as well as several other religious celebrations. The great influence of religion in the lives of Nicaraguans is often evident in their speech as they utter phrases like “if it is God's will”.
The country has strong folklore, music and religious traditions, deeply influenced by European culture but enriched with Amerindian sounds and flavours. Nicaragua has historically been an important source of poetry in the Hispanic world, with internationally renowned contributors, the best known being Rubén Darío.

Nicaraguan culture can further be defined in several distinct strands. The west of the country was colonized by Spain and its people are predominantly Mestizo or European in composition.
The eastern half of the country, on the other hand, was once a British protectorate. Its culture is similar to that of Caribbean nations that were or are British colonies, such as Jamaica, Belize, The Cayman Islands, etc. Although recent immigration by mestizos has largely influenced younger generations and an increasing number of people are either bilingual at home or speak Spanish only. There is a relatively large population of people of mixed African descent, as well as a smaller Garifuna population.
Modern Nicaraguan music is a mixture of indigenous and European, especially Spanish, influences. Musical instruments include the marimba and others common across Central America. Pop music includes Cuban, Brazilian, Mexican and Panamanian performers, as well as stars from Europe and the United States.

The Caribbean coast of Nicaragua is known for a lively, sensual form of dance music that is especially loud and celebrated during the May Palo de Mayo festival. The Garifuna community exists in Nicaragua and is known for its popular music called Punta. Another popular musical genre in Nicaragua is the Chicheros, often consisting of trumpet and trombone or other brass instruments, with additional musicians playing various percussions.
Nicaragua is full of animals of all kinds. The rainforests, lakes, mountains and volcanoes of Nicaragua are home to a large variety of animals, birds, and sea life.
Lake Nicaragua and the River San Juan are home to the only known fresh water sharks in the world. They are bull sharks that came from the Caribbean up the River San Juan and slowly adjusted to the freshwater. On the Pacific coast, a refuge has been set aside for the thousands of sea turtles that come out of the ocean at night to lay there eggs on the sandy beaches. The guardabarranco is the national bird of Nicaragua. It is red and yellow with green tail feathers. It eats bugs, small lizards, and fruit. Green parrots, known as chocoyos live within the crater of Masaya volcano, nesting on rocky ledges, surrounded by sulfur dioxide gas. Other colorful birds in Nicaragua are macaws, parrots, and toucans. It is common to see people selling parrots on the roadside, or having them as pets in their homes.
The jaguar is the largest wild cat that lives in Nicaragua. Some others are the puma, cougar, jaguarondi, margay, and ocelot
