Nicaragua is the largest nation in Central America, with stunning landscapes, vast cultural treasures, and an intriguing history. Up until recently, Nicaragua had been known for the civil war between the Sandinistas and the Contras, which raged for years before finally ending. Today, the soldiers and guerrillas have been replaced with tour guides eager to show you their beautiful country. Browse the small shops and stroll the many churches of Puerto Corinto. This quiet village on Nicaragua's tropical Pacific coast serves as your gateway to the rest of Nicaragua.
Nicaragua has something for even the most seasoned traveler - from touring the capital of Managua to strolling the cobblestone streets of colonial Granada on Lake Nicaragua or exploring one of the country's volcanoes.
The Gold Cordoba (NIO) is the official currency of Nicaragua.
