Active volcanoes with bubbling lava, surf-worthy waves, tropical forests, colonial towns, long stretches of white beaches, and beautiful lakes – are you tempted to visit Nicaragua? We bet you are!

We stayed in Nicaragua for less time than we would have liked, and we had to skip the tropical Corn Islands (another reason to come back again!), but we did explore most of the western part of the country with our rental car and had a lot of fun! We are sure you’ll love Nica too –  er, if you manage to find the shade in hot León. 😉

Take a look at our Nicaragua articles and start dreaming (or planning)!
