It’s time to explore the unknown!
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America and is also referred to as “the land of volcanoes and lakes”.
The island of Ometepe is a perfect example: it's a formation of the volcanoes Concepción (1610 mts) and Maderas (1349 mts) and home to the biggest freshwater body in Central America, Lago de Nicaragua.
In addition to Ometepe, Nicaragua hosts more than 300 smaller volcanic islands, which were inhabited by Indian cultures in pre-Columbian times. If you want to see proof, venture to the life-size stone sculptures in front of the church in Altagracia.
The Pacific side of Nicaragua is characterized by a chain of volcanoes (some still-active) that runs through the country from north to south. Both light and dark beaches align the shores of the Pacific, setting the scene for the most notorious attraction: surfing.
Another highlight of Nicaragua is the small colonial town of Granada, at the foot of the volcano Mombacho (1345 mts). As you stroll through the colorful streets of the city, admire the beautiful colonial architecture influenced by the Spaniards, dating back to 1524. The town's cathedral is regarded as one of the most important colonial buildings in Central America.
Are you dreaming of fine sandy beaches, turquoise blue sea and Caribbean flair? Then we invite you to visit Nicaragua's remote, unspoiled Corn Islands about 70 kms off the Caribbean coast. This is a paradise for adventurers, fans of scuba diving and snorkeling. Of course, if long walks along the beach and unwinding in a hammock are your thing, we'll also be happy to arrange that!
