The largest, most sparsely populated, and least visited of the Central American nations, Nicaragua borders Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south. With the added bonus of the Atlantic on the east and the Pacific on the west, Nicaragua offers a diverse landscape full of lush vegetation and wildlife, largely unspoiled by development.
Known as the “Land of Lakes and Volcanoes,” Nicaragua’s volcanic chain is one of the most impressive in Central America due to the beauty of the more than 50 cones, 7 of which are active. Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast is blessed with miles of pristine undeveloped coastline. The people of Nicaragua are known for having huge smiles and being very welcoming and genuinely friendly.
