Welcome to the “land of lakes and volcanoes!” Nicaragua is right smack dab in the middle of Central America, and it’s full of natural beauty, islands to explore, and friendly locals.

Both the East and the West coasts offer different cultural experiences, so take our advice and don’t stick to just one side of the country. There are amazing beaches, huge artisan markets, and lots of opportunities to hike up and even look into active volcanoes!

We love traveling around Nicaragua, and it’s incredibly affordable compared to other Central American countries, so it’s a top choice for anyone looking for a budget-friendly travel destination.
