Hand-crafted Travel to Nicaragua

For many, Nicaragua won’t necessarily be the first on a bucket list, which may be a result of its complicated past revolutionary history and political situation, coupled with some geological and climatological difficulties. However, Nicaraguans are warm and hospitable people, who welcome tourists with open arms. Now is a fantastic time to visit, as it is far from overridden with tourists and you’re guaranteed to have a truly unique and authentic Latin America experience in this beautiful part of Central America.

The university town of Leon is a fascinating place to learn about Nicaragua’s whirlwind revolutionary past. Combine this with a few days in Granada, a beautiful Spanish colonial town, just a 30 minute drive from the capital city of Managua and located on the shores of the glistening Lake Nicaragua – Central America’s largest body of water. On this mystical lake is where you will find Ometepe Island, home to two imposing twin volcanoes, Concepción and Maderas, the former of which is still active. A stay on this island will take you on rewarding volcano hikes, wonderfully scenic bike rides, local farm visits and wild beach walks. While often overshadowed by neighbouring Costa Rica when it comes to wildlife, Nicaragua is actually home to a number of abundant rainforests and excellent wildlife spotting opportunities, including sloths, monkeys, capybara, tropical birds, and caiman, among many others. The spectacular Corn Islands boast some near-empty palm-fringed beaches, excellent for a few nights of relaxation, and the Pacific is a surfer’s paradise with some wild world-famous waves.

Nicaragua Hotspots

Nicaragua’s diverse landscapes and cultural heritage make it a great place to stop on your Latin America adventure. Granada, with its colourful colonial architecture, offers a glimpse into the country’s history. Ometepe Island in Lake Nicaragua boasts volcanic landscapes and indigenous culture. Explore the vibrant markets of Masaya and the serene beauty of Little Corn Island.


Matagalpa is a much smaller mountainous city in Nicaragua, located slightly at altitude (about 700m), which gives it a cooler temperature nestled in the cloud forest. The climate here means it’s the perfect place for growing coffee and the chocolate produced in this region is particularly renowned! The Selva Negra Cloud Forest is a fantastic place for birdwatching and hiking through scenic valleys and plantations.
