Vacations in Nicaragua

By

On the isthmus that connects the two Americas – North America and South America is located the beautiful country of Nicaragua, which has natural beauty that is sure to impress all. It is the largest Central American country and it has the Caribbean Sea to its East and the Pacific Ocean to its West. Costa Rica is located to its South East while Honduras is located to its Northwest. Unlike a lot of other places in North America and South America, Nicaragua till date happens to be one of the lesser explored natural paradises. It has suffered a lot during the Civil War, and has also seen many natural disasters, not to forget the Dictatorship too over it.

However, currently it is a democratic country that offers a lot of activities for the tourists, ranging from those in the oceans to those in the highlands, the volcanoes and even the rainforests. Managua – located on the banks of the Lake Managua – which was affected severely by the 1972 earthquake, is the capital of Nicaragua.  It has beautiful places for the tourists, such as the old Cathedral, National Palace of Culture, Plaza de la Revolucion, and Ruben Dario National Theatre etc.

You can see 6000 years old human footprints in the volcanic ash present in the Acahualinca museum. You should also not miss the Tiscapa Lagoon Natural Reserve, and the Momotombo volcano which is located in the middle of Lake Managua.
