Sometimes seen as the hidden gem in Central America, Nicaragua is now a thriving adventure destination that has an abundance of both culture and activities!

During the Nicaraguan Revolution in the 1980s, Nicaragua was not regarded as a place to travel, which caused a decrease in tourism. However, rapid expansion of the tourist industry over the last decade has made it the nation's second largest industry. The country is home to numerous volcanoes (some active), untouched beaches, perfect waves and extremely friendly locals.

Adventure days in Nica can include surfing, fishing, hiking, san boarding volcanoes, zip lining, kayaking, mountain biking and trail riding to name a few.

Dry season begins in November and runs through to April, which is generally the peak season within the country. Throughout this period, you’ll experience dry days, warm weather and plenty of sunshine. For the surfers out there, travelling to Nicaragua between the month of May and October will see some of the biggest swells to hit the west coast. Most of the main breaks are located short drives from either San Juan Del Sur in the south or Popoyo. Regular flights from Central America and the US land into Augusto C. Sandino International Airport, with San Juan Del Sur around a $50 USD taxi away.

Nicaragua is a truly unique country with an ‘underground’ vibe and first class adventure on your doorstep. It offers a great alternative to the bordering Costa Rica, without the crowds and a much more affordable price!
