Nicaragua is arguably the least understood and least visited country on the Central American isthmus. It is also the largest and encompasses a multi-ethnic population that includes indigenous peoples, Europeans, Africans and Asians.
The rich mix of cultural traditions has created substantial diversity in art and literature, with noted Nicaraguan poets and writers, including Rubén Darío, Pablo Antonio Cuadra and Ernesto Cardenal. Matagalpa is Nicaragua´s coffee capital and home to nature reserves. Hikers can trek up active volcanoes such as Masaya Volcano’s smoking crater or savor barefoot luxury on a private tropical beach. In the field of archaeology, Nicaragua is enjoying new discoveries that suggest that complex societies were developing in Mesoamerica earlier than researchers had previously believed. It is only a matter of time before Nicaragua’s archaeological treasures are uncovered. As part of the Mesoamerican Biodiversity Hotspot, these two Central American countries combine to offer a wealth of natural and cultural adventures. In short, luxury Nicaragua tours offers a complete vacation experience.
