This Central American paradise is a land of natural beauty, friendly locals and a unique culture. Be sure to visit before it’s overrun by tourists.
Nicaragua is one of those destinations that steals your heart from the moment you arrive. And with expansive lakes, majestic volcanoes, verdant jungle and pristine beaches, it’s not difficult to figure out why. Not only is Nicaragua blessed with natural abundance and countless picture-perfect snapshots, the local Nicaraguans are some of the friendliest in all of Central America. Add to that world-renowned cigars, coffee and chocolate, and you have the makings of a truly fantastic vacation.
Nicaragua is only continuing to grow in popularity, with many travelers dubbing it “the new Costa Rica.” We’re hesitant to call it the new anything — Nicaragua is uniquely wonderful and boasts a culture that is quite different from what you’ll find south of the border.
Nice post from Dan and Casey, aka A Cruising Couple, who look like they know how to have a good time! And thank you for pointing out the fallacy of the whole “new Costa Rica” meme–the culture in Nicaragua is much more vibrant than in Costa Rica–so good on ‘ya for acknowledging that fact.
