Magic of Nicaragua
Land of lakes and volcanoes, poets and musicians, revolutionary ideal and passionate politics, Nicaragua has long fascinated international travelers. Alexander von Humboldt and Mark Twain wrote about Nicaragua in the 19th Century and left-wing idealists from all over the world made pilgrimages there during the Sandinista Revolution of the 1980s. Today tourists, backpackers, surfers, writers, artists, ecologists, and language students have rediscovered the beauty and uniqueness of the largest country in Central America.
Although it is the second poorest country in Latin America, Nicaragua is incredibly rich in natural resources, scenery and culture. Gorgeous Pacific beaches, the largest untouched rain forests in Central America, incredible biodiversity, the indigenous villages of the Caribbean coast, scuba diving on the Corn Islands, the vibrant art scene in Managua, the colonial grandeur of Granada and Leon, organic coffee plantations, and magnificent national parks are among the attractions for students and international visitors.
Above all, the legendary friendliness and hospitality of the Nicaragua people will draw you in and make you want to keep coming back.
