We have current Nicaragua articles here: News
Nicaragua has a great chain of volcanoes in the north, with lakes, rainforest, mangrove swamps, coffee plantations, a gorgeous Caribbean coast with coral reefs, and sandy Pacific beaches where turtles come to lay their eggs. For culture lovers, old Spanish colonial towns like Granada have some superb architecture, whilst León has a huge baroque cathedral and some excellent art galleries.
Nicaragua is bordered by Costa Rica to the south and Honduras to the north and it is very easy to combine the south of Nicaragua with Costa Rica.
Climate and when to go
The dry season runs from December-May, with temperatures becoming unbearably hot towards the end of the season. The wettest months are June to October. The most popular time to visit is just after the rainy season in November.
“I've just sent you a card of a drawing I did in Zacatecas to thank you all for a wonderful trip. It was the right balance between travel, sightseeing and exploration as far as we were concerned. El Salvador was a positive surprise and Morgan's Rock was great and a good way to end the holiday. Thanks again, we really enjoyed the trip.” - CB
