Crystal-clear lakes, enchanted fortresses, world-class beaches along the sun-soaked Caribbean coast and tropical rainforests — these are only some of the things you can enjoy in Nicaragua.

The largest country in Central America, Nicaragua also shares its colonial architecture, deep canyons and volcanic landscapes with the world.

Nicaragua is the perfect getaway for those looking to escape the stresses of city life.

Top tourist attractions in the country include Tiscapa Lagoon in Managua, a 15-hectare crater lake formed by an extinct volcano. You can tour the lagoon by gliding over it using the zip-line or walking around it and observing nature. If you want a greater challenge, visit the ancient Cañon de Somato in northern Nicaragua.

If you are after a more leisurely pace, why not ride a Caponeras to Granada in western Nicaragua and be enthralled by their Spanish colonial architecture and cathedrals? Granada preserves the Nicaraguan history through historic cafes and horse-drawn carriages. A visit to the city will take you back in time.

If you want to expand your knowledge on world-class literature, visit the Museo Ruben Dario in Leon City to read the famous poetry and masterpieces of Ruben Dario, the Prince of Castillan Letters. In this museum, you’ll see his death bed and read several records about how he shaped the Nicaraguan culture. Other historic museums include Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian and Museo de Tradiciones y Leyendas in Leon.

You may also want to rent a 4WD vehicle and go to places less travelled by visitors. Visit indigenous communities and pre-Columbian ruins. This is also the best way to interact with friendly locals.

Your travel in Nicaragua is incomplete without savouring the tastiest dishes – Nacatamales, Quesillo and Indio Viejo. Pair these with icy sugarcane, Tiste, or Chize Maize.

In Nicaragua, spiritual, physical and historical adventure awaits you. There’s always a perfect tour for all kinds of travellers.
