If you’re looking for the ultimate place to soak up the sun and enjoy the cool tranquility of water, look no further than Nicaragua.

With beaches stretching along both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea, as well a number of inland lakes and rivers, you will have no shortage of beautiful beaches to enjoy in this stunning country. In fact, many visitors have come to view Nicaragua as the ultimate beach holiday destination.

White sandy beaches, tropical forests, one of the biggest lakes in Latin America and stunning colonial cities all contribute to a great tourism experience.

Nicaragua tourism excels because of its amazing diversity. Naturally, warm sea water all year round makes for great beach holidays in Nicaragua. The stunning architecture of Nicaraguan cities will captivate old and young. Lakes, lagoons, forests and islands make Nicaragua a paradise for outdoor lovers.

The Nicaragua tourism destinations that hold the most potential are beyond a doubt Ometepe Island, Padres Ramos Estuary and the Volcanoes Route. Corn Island, just off Nicaragua forms part of the Caribbean Islands and offers sailing, scuba and sport fishing opportunities.

The main beaches along Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast are Montelimar, San Juan del Sur, La Flor, La Boquita and Pochomil. However these are certainly not the only beaches available. Some are closely guarded surfing secrets while others are somewhat rocky and not generally enjoyed by swimmers and sunbathers. Virtually every town along the Pacific Coast features its own little beach. Corinto, for instance, is popular with visiting windsurfers and sunbathing locals alike. The western or Caribbean Coast is not as well suited to cater for tourism, but offers some unparalleled opportunities to enjoy the wonders of nature. Largely untouched by modern development, you will be able to experience beautiful coral reefs, crystal clear waters and a brush with the locals. Better suited to nature lovers than to sun bathers, the Caribbean Coast is one of Nicaragua’s best kept secrets.

The sights in Nicaragua tend more towards natural attractions than that of ancient buildings as many historical sights have been destroyed by earthquakes and military conflicts. However, amazing sights in Nicaragua are not in short supply.

Travellers wanting to get a better view of the area can head to the exciting Mombacho Canopy Tours. Latch onto the zip line attached to your harness and view the Mombacho Volcano from new heights. The tour lasts about an hour and a half, but tourists will be taken around the reserve, given the coffee-farm tour, a horse ride and a bird watching hike. The zip line course is made up of 15 platforms and one 25-metre long rope bridge, making for a wonderful adventure.

Those fascinated with the power and beauty of volcanos now can get the chance to stand on an active volcano where your feet are mere metres away from a fiery lava pit. Nicaragua has an abundance of volcanoes to choose from, it is a very dangerous activity and is advised to join a certified tour group instead of trying to navigate your own way to the top. Some tour companies will spread the experience out over a few days so visitors get the opportunity to camp at the foot of a volcano, swim in the crater lakes, explore the forests surrounding the volcanoes and learn more about the volcanic fauna and flora that is unique to the area.
