Republic of Nicaragua is the largest Country in Central America, bordering Honduras to the North and Costa Rica to the South. The Pacific Ocean lies to the West, and the Caribbean Sea to the East.

Nicaragua is Central America’s “Best Kept Secret” and a “A Country with Heart,”.

The unparalleled natural beauty of Nicaragua is further enriched by its strong cultural heritage and the legacy of its warm and friendly People. Nicaragua’s multi-ethnic and multi-lingual people take great pride in their culture and in their country and welcome visitors with open arms.

The country's physical geography divides it into three major zones: Pacific lowlands; wet, cooler central highlands; and the Caribbean lowlands. On the Pacific side of the country are the two largest fresh water lakes in Central America—Lake Managua and Lake Nicaragua. Surrounding these lakes and extending to their northwest along the rift valley of the Gulf of Fonseca are fertile lowland plains, with soil highly enriched by ash from nearby volcanoes of the central highlands. Nicaragua's abundance of biologically significant and unique ecosystems contributes to Mesoamerica's designation as a biodiversity hotspot.

Nicaragua has been a peaceful democracy for more than a decade and has the lowest crime rate of any Latin American nation. It’s a land of lush tropical forests, volcanoes, lakes, a bio-diverse river and endless miles of pristine coastline.

Situated at the very center of the Americas, Nicaragua is an ideal place to visit for anyone looking for something uniquely different and adventurous. In the heart of Central America, Nicaragua truly deserves the descriptive nickname of “The Land of Lakes and Volcanoes”. Visitors to Nicaragua are able to enjoy the natural beauty of dozens of volcanoes, rivers, and lakes, as well as two oceans.

Nicaragua offers an immense variety of activities such as visiting the Spanish colonial cities of Granada and Leon, surfing world-class waves, hiking up volcanoes, and zip-lining through the forest canopy. Ever-popular is the kayaking on the calm waters of Lake Cocibolca, also known as Lake Nicaragua, an immense lake with over three hundred islands and home to the only fresh water sharks in the world. Nicaragua is especially great for those interested in eco-tourism, and is home to a rich diversity of animal and plant species.

San Juan del Sur is the most popular travel and vacation destination on Nicaragua's Pacific coast and offers a lively mix of local culture and tourist amenities. Direct access to a wide variety of activities such as surfing and fishing along with beautiful beaches and exciting nightlife makes San Juan del Sur the ideal location for your Nicaragua vacation. Visit this lovely beach town and experience for yourself the natural beauty, friendly people, and local style that make it so unique.

Nicaragua can be reached through flight connections from various North, Central, South American, Caribbean and European countries. International flights land at Sandino International Airport in Managua, the nation’s capital.

The Nicaraguan currency is the Córdoba, but most establishments accept payment in US dollars.

Spanish is the official language and is spoken by the vast majority of Nicaraguans. English and other indigenous languages are used along the Caribbean coast and in parts of the Atlantic coastal plain. Many Nicaraguans also speak some English.

The climate in Nicaragua remains virtually the same all year round. Temperatures vary by elevation, but do not see much fluctuation in each region.

The dry season lasts from November to May, making this an excellent time to visit. During the green season, the rain is especially heavy in September and October; however, these rains and the electrical storms turn the area into a kaleidoscope of images over the ocean and the vegetation comes to life in an array of spectacular colours.

The Surf Sanctury Resort located in Playa Santana in the wave rich southwest coast line of Nicaragua provides comfortable accommodation and friendly service.
