Nicaragua is a land of lakes, lagoons and numerous volcanoes, many of which are still active. It also has long coastlines with both the Pacific and Caribbean Seas and three geographical areas – the Pacific lowlands, the central highlands and the Caribbean lowlands. Although it is the largest of the Central American countries, approximately 20% of its land is protected and it has a real biodiversity, including some unique ecosystems.
Nicaragua is a relative latecomer to tourism but is quickly being discovered for its off the beaten track feel, wonderful volcanic scenery and friendly population.
Its geography also lends itself to exciting adventure sports for all ages, most of which involve water or volcanoes! Popular sports include kayaking, surfing, zip wiring, snorkelling, diving, hiking and cycling. In 2012 Nicaragua hosted the World Masters Surfing Championship at Hacienda Iguana on the Pacific coast.
Nicaragua’s natural geography and friendly people make it an ideal place to undertake a multi activity holiday. Not only will you partake in well organised activities in fascinating scenery, you will also get to experience the interesting and welcoming country that is Nicaragua.
