Discover why Nicaragua is one of the world's up and coming destinations
The largest country in Central America, Nicaragua has recovered from a turbulent recent past to earn a reputation as a tropical, exotic and welcoming nation. To journey through its verdant interior is to encounter smouldering volcanoes, lush rainforests, vast lakes and enchanting islands. It is to meet a colourful collection of native wildlife and discover a rich vein of Spanish colonial heritage, evidenced in some of the most beautifully well-preserved cities of the era. Arriving at either Nicaragua's Caribbean or Pacific coastlines will uncover idyllic sun-drenched beaches, hidden behind dense forest, often deserted and always inviting. Best of all, despite increasing visitor numbers as Nicaragua's popularity continues to rise, it still retains the feeling of an emerging destination, sufficiently off the beaten track to remain largely unspoilt by the masses, yet resplendent with the luxury resorts, expert guides and warm Nicaraguan hospitality that will make your stay truly memorable.
