Nicaragua is a country with many things people can do both indoors and in the great outdoors. The old Cathedral in the capital is a beautiful place to visit and admire even with the damage done by the earthquake, and the Center for Art in Leon is a way to get a feel for the breadth of the country’s art culture. For those who want an outdoors experience, the Laguna and the Volcano at Mombacho will satisfy desires for swimming, hiking and generally enjoying the fresh air.

One of the best things about our travel experience to and from Nicaragua is the ease of getting in and out of the country. From our home city of Pittsburgh, it’s a two-part trip – first a direct flight to Houston, or Miami, with a medium-length layover, and then an easy, direct flight to Managua’s modern, clean Augusto C. Sandino International Airport. We typically breeze through customs and baggage claim, and then find our shuttle to our hotel, typically the Hilton, Intercontinental or Seminole. It’s amazingly easy and trouble-free.

Travelers and potential residents looking for the perfect place to stay in Nicaragua can call off the search once they have discovered the Gran Pacifica Beach and Golf Resort. With private beaches and luxurious accommodation, the resort is a wonderful place to call home, even if just for a few nights. Part of the appeal comes from the amenities, which include a 27-hole golf course, pro shop and clubhouse. Even for non-golfers, the resort is ideal thanks to outdoor swimming pools, walking paths, private beaches and a community gathering space. Inside of each rental, there are amenities designed to make the space feel like home.

While Nicaragua was once a hidden destination popular only with those savvy travelers eager to get off the beaten path, it is now a world-class vacation spot for those eager to soak up the sun at a low price. Government investments in the country’s infrastructure have gone a long way in making the area safer and more stable, and investments from global individuals are raising property prices and encouraging development of all kinds. In addition, the rising influence of social media means that travelers who have a great time in Nicaragua are eager to spread the word, encouraging others to visit. Finally, it is the low price of everyday living that makes tourism possible for many travelers.

Nicaragua is perhaps best known for its inviting population, amazing climate and breathtakingly beautiful beaches, but there is a lot more to the country than what initially meets the eye. Travelers ready for something new can explore a number of interesting places in Nicaragua. You can swim in the crater of an inactive volcano at Laguna de Apoyo, and you can even take a guided tour of an active volcano like Volcan Masaya. Little Corn Island lets you retreat into a secluded paradise, or you could watch sea turtles lay eggs right on the sand when visiting the beaches of Poneloya.

The internal strife that gave tourism in Nicaragua a bad name back in the 1980s is now long over, and the huge growth in visitors the country is now experiencing reflects that change. Eco-tourists and nature lovers of all kinds will find plenty of pristine beauty to enjoy. One especially lovely attraction is the Islets of Granada, a group of islands created from volcanic eruptions and bursting with beautiful flora and fauna. Travelers from nations outside of the Americas will need special visas, and even American tourists should make sure they have all the correct paperwork filed and fees paid.
