More About Nicaragua..

Nicaragua offers a sensational diversity of geography and activities that can all be reached in a few hours.

Beaches and Surfing

Whether you want to surf in the crashing waves of the Pacific, or just relax and sunbathe on the sugar-white beaches of the Caribbean, Nicaragua has what you are looking for. Surfers have been making the trek to Rivas for decades, battling the huge surf and enjoying the budget lifestyle. Beach bums and snorkelers enjoy the calm waters of Corn Island, where even the most popular areas are still peaceful and undeveloped.

Whatever your preference, Nicaragua beaches are among the best in Central America.

Outdoor Activities

In Nicaragua, you can reach any number of wildly different activities in just a few hours, from surfing down a live volcano to cave diving, landing a hundred-pound tarpon to paddling down alligator-infested creeks and rivers. Not only are all of these activities accessible from anywhere in the country, they are (for the most part) relatively untamed.

For the independent and adventurous traveler, Nicaragua is truly the place for new and thrilling experiences.

Architecture and Beauty

The colonial beauty of Nicaragua can be enjoyed two ways. Granada is a beautiful, peaceful and well-restored city of huge churches, massive city homes and busy town squares. Lovers of colonial architecture have been coming here for years to experience the amazing beauty of this city. Far less restored but busier and more active, León offers a much different colonial atmosphere. Vibrant and proud, you feel the energy of León 24 hours a day.
