Central America’s wild child, Nicaragua is a unique destination packed with smoking volcanoes, colonial culture, and endless gorgeous beaches. Get ready to surf volcanoes, step into tropical jungle, and discover an untouched country of natural adventure.

Nicaragua is a land of striking beauty, from tropical rainforests, rugged highlands, remote beaches and fertile plains to serenely beautiful Lake Nicaragua. It is the largest country in Central America but also one of the least explored.

This Central American wonder is rich in stunning landscapes still untouched by mass market tourism, charming colonial towns with cobbled streets and beautiful cathedrals, warm coastal waters and unbeatable beaches with a multitude of adventurous activities to enjoy, not to mention, smoking hot volcanoes. Nicaragua has a chain of volcanoes running from the north to the south along the country’s Pacific side. Many of these volcanoes offer some great adventure possibilities, such as hiking, climbing, camping, swimming in crater lakes and perhaps the most exhilarating of all, volcano surfing. Nicaragua is adrenaline inducing for all the right reasons.
