Welcome to Nicaragua

"I have fallen totally in love with Nicaragua – its lush rainforests, retro architecture and pastel coloured towns, and last but not least the staggering amount of wildlife I saw in just four weeks!"

Nicaragua lies at the heart of Central America, and although representing only 0.5% of the globe's land surface it contains an estimated 7% of the entire world's animal and plant species. Hidden in this spectacularly rich, green, hot, and lush region you can find jaguars, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and armadillos. The beautiful beaches of the coastal region of Nicaragua are vital as breeding grounds for highly endangered populations of turtles. Manatees, sharks, barracudas, and rays are also found off Nicaragua's coasts alongside bright, jewel-coloured fish.
