Nicaragua’s recent political history is as tumultuous as its geography. It’s a wild place where you will find active volcanoes spitting gouts of fire, rainforests teeming with animals and two epic coastlines. You will also find many proud Nicas who, having survived years of revolution and upheaval, have a collective feeling that they helped create the relative stability of modern Nicaragua.

It’s true, you may well be drawn to the calm lapping waters of Ometepe, the colonial towns of Grenada and Leon both steeped in history, or adventure activities like abseiling down a canyon wall or volcano boarding. If it’s beaches you’re after, you can choose from world-class surfing breaks of the Pacific coast or the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Corn Islands, but to truly understand what makes this country so special, take a taste of daily life with us. This could be as simple as riding on the local buses – Nicaragua’s beating heart - amongst the music, drama and bustle or as immersive as helping out a family on their coffee farm, but it’s sure to be an experience you won’t forget.
