About Nicaragua

See our Guru's list of the best places to stay in Nicaragua

Along one beautiful coastline of Nicaragua runs the bright blue waters of the Caribbean, and on the other the crashing waves of the Pacific. And in between are some incredible volcanic landscapes, lush, hardly-explored forests, a history which reads like a novel and includes the construction of some beautiful colonial cities and towns, and some breathtakingly underdeveloped beaches. So choosing the best places to stay in Nicaragua is really about why you want to visit this mid South American beauty.

If you’re here for the history and drama of old Nicaragua, then the best places to stay are in elegant Granada, which is one of the country’s best preserved colonial towns. Or, if you prefer your history a little more dramatic, then vibrant, working-class León might be for you, with its revolutionary murals and architectural masterpieces now housing very work-a-day stores and offices.

If you’re here to surf then the Rivas are one of the best places to stay in Nicaragua. And if you’d rather snorkel, dive or muck around with boats then the Corn Islands will inthrall you. For fishing, mangrove swamps, thick jungles and tropical ports then the Caribbean coastline is for you. And if you’re looking for those perfect sandy, sunny, surfy beaches then it’s the Pacific coast to head for, where there’s only 4WD access to some outposts. And if you’re here for the coffee and or tobacco, then the best places to stay in Nicaragua are in the Northern Highlands.

But one of the best things about Nicaragua is how underdeveloped it is. It doesn’t take long for the tourist trail to ebb away and you’re on your own, exploring the wonderfully varied interior. Nicaragua has amazing mountains and volcanoes, volcanic lakes surrounded by barely-mapped jungles hiding pre-Columbian runs and old Spanish fortresses, there are wetlands, farms, acres of empty beaches and the attitude to visitors is generally very positive. So you’re after afforded a real insight into the culture, even when you’re not expecting it.
