Discover the wonders of Nicaragua - Central America's largest and yet least visited country, which remains refreshingly untouched by tourism. Sandwiched between Honduras and Costa Rica, Nicaragua has a string of attractions, from miles of dense rainforest, lush tobacco fields and majestic volcanoes, to beautiful lakes and the charming Spanish colonial towns towns of Leon and ancient Granada. Founded by the Spanish in 1524 and located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, at the base of Mombacho Volcano, Granada is one of Central Americaâ€™s most charismatic towns and has a distinctly Moorish feel.
In the centre of picturesque Lake Nicaragua, is the tranquil island of Ometepe. With its two towering volcanic peaks rising dramatically from the lake, Ometepe is a spectacular sight to behold, blessed with pristine white sand beaches and lush rainforest, which are home to an array of wildlife and ripe for adventure.
On Ometepe Island see waterfalls and wildlife as you hike through cloud forest to the top of Maderas Volcano where you can freshen up with a dip in its incredible crater lake; take the challenging trek to the summit of Concepcion Volcano; try zip lining through the Mombacho Volcano Cloud Forest; or enjoy a trek through scenic Masaya National Park, with its double-crested and still active volcano.
