Nicaragua

Poet Ruben Dario called it ‘Our America, trembling with hurricanes, trembling with love’. Recent history rollercoastered residents through dictatorships, revolution, civil war and economic collapse, but Nicas, as they’re known, are presidents and proud. Fast forward and today’s Nicaragua is considered among the safest countries in Central America. The politics are still far from settled or straightforward. Yet travellers are starting to come in large numbers. With its seductive colonial settings, a passion for poetry and big beaches breaks, Nicaragua has become a regional spot. Dollars stretch far here, and a warm tropical welcome eases the transition. Just don’t offend your hosts by calling it ‘the next Costa Rica’
