Nicaragua Mini Guide

The country is stunningly beautiful and largely unspoilt outside of the main cities and towns. It has suffered greatly since independence with civil war and acts of terror compounding natural disasters such as earthquakes and mudslides. Today it is a multi-ethnic community which has worked hard to get itself back on the road to economic stability by promoting its natural treasures. Tourism is gradually on the increase and the country regularly features on the list of top ten places to visit.

Getting to Nicaragua?
You can fly into Augusto Sandino International Airport just outside Managua which last year accepted over 1.2m passengers on routes from the US, Canada and across Latin America. Travellers from Europe need to fly into Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida or Atlanta in Georgia to get a connecting flight to Managua. Be aware that large scale ripping off of tourists by taxi drivers is prevalent so it may be worth hiring a car at the airport to avoid costly difficulties.

What to do in Nicaragua?
The country has some of the most amazing virgin rainforest anywhere in the world as well as historic sights and great beaches along the Caribbean coast. There’s also some fantastic shopping to be had on local crafts and jewellery.

Nicaragua Factfile

  • Nicaragua is the largest country on the narrow strip of land that separates the two continents of South and North America
  • Nicaragua was named after the local native leader Nicarao and agua, the Spanish for water, referring to the two huge lakes located inland
  • The country was first conquered by Spain in 1524 and gained its independence in 1821. Since then it has been on a rollercoaster of fortunes with earthquakes and civil war hampering its efforts to grow economically

Is it safe to rent a car in Nicaragua?

After years of being a dangerous country to visit, Nicaragua has finally made it onto the world map of must-see destinations. The country has many different environments and with a rental car you can explore the lake region, drive through the untouched rainforest or cross the grassy lowlands that border the Caribbean.

Roads outside of Managua are often in a poor state of repair and if you are planning to drive beyond the city limits, renting a 4x4 is the safest option.
