Home to the largest lake in Central America and nineteen active volcanoes, Nicaragua lives up to it's nickname — the land of lakes and volcanoes. Scattered among its beautiful peaks are historic cities bustling with modern life and small farming towns that could be plucked from any time in the twentieth century. Whether you want to stroll around the colonial city of Granada, meet living revolutionaries in León, surf waves on the Pacific, climb — and then board down — an active volcano, or sample some of the best coffee, rum, and tobacco in the world, this gem of a country has it all.
