Nicaragua Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Nicaragua?
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.

How do I get 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 Should I do When 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.
