Nicaragua, the largest country in Central America, is an unexplored tourist gem. Although rarely in the top tourist destinations, this country certainly has a complete tourist offer, ideal beaches, rich nightlife and historical and natural beauty.

The beaches are perhaps the greatest tourist potential of this country, and the most beautiful are located along the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. Some of the beaches are so gentle that all types of swimmers can enjoy a full day at sea. What is specific about these beaches is that they are huge and not crowded, so peace and relaxation are guaranteed here.

San Juan del Sur is the epicenter of tourism, and here is the largest concentration of foreign tourists. The town itself is located in a large bay, where yachts, boats and fishing boats are anchored. By the way, San Juan del Sur is located in the Tola area, where many other famous beaches are located, such as Brito beach, which extends all the way to the Chacocente reserve, known for its turtles. Tola is a place where you can find the best surf beaches in Nicaragua and here come surfers from all over the world.

However, a visit and acquaintance with a country would certainly not be complete without a visit to the capital, in this case Managua. This is a medium-sized city, with about 1.7 million inhabitants. It is located on the southwest shore of the lake of the same name. What is the basic characteristic of Managua is that it is the safest capital in this part of the world.

Nicaragua is also known for having the largest lake island in the world. It is the island of Ometepe, which is located in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. One of the attractions of Nicaragua are the numerous nature reserves, and the most famous is Bosavas. It is a tropical forest, located in northern Nicaragua, and partly enters neighboring Honduras. There are about 1,000 animal species in this reserve, as well as rare plants.

And finally, the story of Nicaragua would not be complete without the mention of its volcanoes. Namely, Nicaragua has several locations where volcanic activity is extremely high. There are dozens of volcanoes, some of which are active and some dormant. Visitors mostly visit the volcano on the island of Ometepe, which offers a beautiful view of the surroundings.

On the Pacific side, the Invierno or rainy season lasts from May to November, and is rainiest in September and October when sea turtles lay their eggs. The dry or dry season is from November to April and then is the best time for hiking, camping and parties. The dry season coincides with the high tourist season, which is from December to March.

An unexplored tourist gem with an abundance of natural beauties and a unique antique charm. The land of salsa, tango, bananas, coffee and tobacco – all that's Nicaragua!
