Nicaragua

Introduction

Having overcome various challenges and despite having something of a frontier feel, Nicaragua is emerging as an eco-tourist destination. Nicaragua travel and tailor-made tours to Nicaragua allow you to explore the picturesque landscapes here whilst beach holidays in Nicaragua are also increasingly popular.

Central America's largest cathedral and Nicaragua's best churches and museums are found in Léon, at the foot of a shapely volcano. Granada, once beloved by pirates and marauders is now a colourful colonial town with spectacular views of the nearby Mombacho Volcano; climb the volcano for views over Granada and the hundreds of islets just off-shore. San Carlos, on the banks of Lake Nicaragua, is an old fortress town set amidst idyllic surroundings.

The smoking Momotombo volcano, crater lakes and the site where 9,000-year-old human footprints were found make Lago de Managua well worth visiting.

Elsewhere, the Caribbean Coast exerts a strong pull, with the deserted coastline, virgin rainforest and undeveloped Corn Islands the main draw; dive the Shark's Cave or snorkel on the coral reef here before retreating to the beaches.

A taste of...Latin America

Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors stamped their authority over most of Latin America, but in the indigenous cuisine they met their match. The result was one of history's greatest culinary shake-ups.
