Nicaragua Travel Guide
Nicaragua, is a large but sparsely populated country of Central America, it has borders to the north with Honduras and to the south Costa Rica. In the past it has been colonized by both the Spanish and the British.
The western half of Nicaragua has fertile valleys separated by low but rugged mountains with many volcanoes. To the west are two big lakes, Nicaragua and Managua, which are connected by the Tipitapa River. The east coast overlooking the Caribbean is swampy and is aptly called the ‘Mosquito Coast’. The Pacific coast is volcanic and very fertile.
While major cities boast splendid colonial architecture and a vibrant culture. A diverse offerings of volcanic landscapes, lakes, wave-battered Pacific beaches, and pristine forests offer numerous chances for exploring off the beaten track.
