Grand Tour of Central America
From Costa Rican tropical forests to Guatemala's Caribbean coast and the pyramids of Tikal
With coastlines on both the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, Nicaragua is the largest of the Central American countries, however its great size certainly does not dilute its charming character.
Nicaraguan culture has strong folklore, music and religious traditions, deeply influenced by European culture passed on by the early arrival of the Spanish conquistadores. Nowhere is this more evident than in the magical colonial cities of Granada and Leon, named after their counterparts in Spain and offering tourists chocolate-box scenes and elegant architecture at every corner.
The island of Ometepe, dominated by two active volcanoes, is surrounded by the waters of Lago Nicaragua, Central America’s largest lake. Still a relatively unexplored country, Nicaragua has much to offer visitors, with growing eco-tourism, beautiful scenery, varied wildlife, world-class beaches and reasonable prices.
