Explore Nicaragua, a peaceful land of volcanoes and lakes, colonial cities and deserted islands, sun and beaches, rivers and tropical forest, highland villages and artisan's markets. A warm, vibrant and unassuming country, Nicaragua is filled with hidden charms waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
Nicaragua is a word from the Nahualt and Aztec languages meaning 'here near the water'. The waters of this country include the Pacific Ocean with its undeveloped coastline, the Caribbean Sea with its numerous tropical islands, and the massive, exotic Lake Nigaragua, home to over four hundred volcanic islands. Volcanoes abound, as do crater lakes and tropical forests, incredibly rich with flora and fauna.
Holiday in Nicaragua and experience its rich and diverse culture with a passion for poetry, traditional dance and music. Rural villages dot the beautiful landscape and horse or ox cart ply the rambling roads. The old colonial towns of Granada and Leon groan under the weight of a colourful history, timeless architecture and unique period churches. This is a unique country where real nature and an unmolested culture emerge to offer a fascinating and varied holiday destination.
