Nicaragua is a very poor country. I went with my nursing school to help family's out. This little girls touched my heart. If you every get the chance try to make a trip there. It's a very beautiful country with volcanoes and wonderful beaches!

Nice little town famous for its market and volcano. The market is the best shopping spot that we saw on our visit to Nicaragua. The town is also home to a number of small shops / boutiques.

Granada is probably the most popular and beautiful colonial city in Nicaragua. It is hugely popular with expats and tourist and is located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. The architecture is beautiful and the city is quite safe by Nicaraguan standards. A pleasant and easy going place to spend a few days.

A popular stop on the backpacker circuit through Nicaragua and THE place to be if you want to try volcano boarding. Also you'll find relatively easy access to some great surf from here.
