Nicaragua – Land of Volcanoes and Lakes

It’s no surprise that Nicaragua has become one of Latin America’s most popular tourist destinations. It’s close to the United States, it’s the safest country in the region, and your dollar or euro will go a lot further in Nicaragua than it will anywhere else.

For starters, getting about the country is simple. It’s an easy and stress-free area to explore, with a clear and entertaining backpacking route of beautiful things to visit. Every city has chicken buses and cheap shuttles, so you’ll never be far from your next destination.

Nicaragua is also extremely inexpensive. In fact, it is one of the cheapest countries to visit in Central America. Food is exceptionally affordable, and beers are so inexpensive that you won’t have to worry about your bill! Hostels and hotels are likewise reasonably priced, and there are lots of options to suit any budget.

Nicaragua, however, is far safer than other Central American countries. The people are pleasant, and crime rates are low, particularly in tourist areas.

Nicaragua is renowned as the land of lakes and volcanoes for a reason: both are plentiful and breathtakingly gorgeous! Lake Nicaragua is the largest tropical freshwater lake in the Americas, and it is home to Ometepe, the world’s largest freshwater island.

Ometepe is a genuine jewel; it’s almost like going back in time to when rural towns were far more prevalent than the large cities that we see now in Central America. Ometepe is a gorgeous island with vast beaches, stunning volcanoes, little towns, natural water springs, and lovely waterfalls. It can be reached either from San Jorge, where the majority of the ferries depart or from Granada, where the government-owned ferry to Ometepe Island departs.

Granada, Nicaragua’s lovely colonial metropolis and the oldest city in Central and South America, has become one of the country’s most popular tourist sites. It’s simple to see why: beautiful colonial architecture, a unique central park where you can hire a horse-drawn carriage to tour the city, and a choice of hotels including bed & breakfasts, boutique hotels, and welcoming hostels make the city accessible to all travellers regardless of their budgets. La Calzada is a lovely pedestrian street that runs from Central Park to Lake Nicaragua, with a diverse selection of restaurants, bars, pubs, and street cafes to suit all tastes and preferences.

San Juan del Sur is another renowned tourist attraction. Together with the previous two, these three attractions make up the “Southern Triangle,” a group of three destinations close to one another and complement one another. San Juan del Sur is a lovely beach town that has become Nicaragua’s surfing centre. Despite its location in a beautiful protected bay, the town is an ideal base for visiting the popular surfing beaches on either side of the bay. San Juan del Sur, on the other hand, isn’t just about surfing! There are many boutique eco-lodges in town and on the nearby beaches and excellent hotels and lodges. If you’re planning a vacation to Nicaragua, don’t forget to include these three places on your list!
