What to do in Central America

Conquer Nicaragua's Volcanoes

Nicaragua is the largest and most sparsely populated of the Central American countries. It has both a Pacific and a Caribbean coastline, two large lakes (Lake Nicaragua and Lake Managua) and a string of prominent volcanoes - two of the largest of which actually form an island (Ometepe Island) within Lake Nicaragua. Many of Nicaragua's volcanoes, such as Cerro Negro and the perfectly conical Momotombo, provide challenging objectives for day-hikes and the country as a whole has lots to offer as a destination for adventure travellers.

It still offers the chance to experience a way of life, seemingly frozen in time since the arrival of Castro and communism in 1959. From the lush tobacco fields of Vinales, with its immense limestone mogotes, to the ancient healing waters of Los Acuaticos and the surrounding rural countryside learning about the lives of local residents, discover this historic land on foot.
