Land of lakes and volcanoes!
The name Nicaragua comes from “Nicarao Cali”, a famous indigenous tribe chief who was very influential at the time of the Spanish conquest. It is the largest country in Central America and borders Costa Rica and Honduras.
The civil war and its struggles are now part of history. Nicaragua is a peaceful democratic nation today, with friendly citizens eager to promote their country and strengthen their economy through the development of tourism. The folklore and culture are very rich, with many festivals and carnivals taking place throughout the year all over the nation. The highlights are the country’s stunning landscapes (lakes, volcanoes, beaches) and the superb colonial cities. Nicaragua has become more and more popular with North American tourists who have coined the country as “the new Costa Rica”. It is definitely a destination on the rise.
