We have been to Nicaragua many times. we even purchased some beachfront land there. (Still have to build on it). It is a safe, friendly country. Grenada and Leon are both Colonial cities, but with different vibes. San Juan Del Sur is the surfer's paradise. Ometepe is an amazing volcanic island in the middle of Colciboca. And corn Islands (Big Corn and Little Corn) are amazing as well! Little corn: boat ride from hell to get there, but so worth it! no roads, only footpaths. Like Gili Islands in Indonesia, but more laid back.Divers paradise.Recommended for:

I loved Nicaragua and the country has a lot to offer -- beaches, hiking, volcanoes, colonial architecture, great seafood and plenty of outdoor activities. Less developed but much nicer than Costa Rica. Safe and relatively easy to navigate without feeling commercial.Recommended for:

As the largest country in Central America, breathtaking Nicaragua is known as 'the country of lakes and mountains’ due to its spectacular landscape. It's dotted with climbable mountains, active mountains and swimable crater lakes. Head out to The Corn Islands for superb scuba diving, explore ancient ruins and go horseback riding through the jungle at Monkey Point. Hostels as cheap as £5 per night.Recommended for:

Everyone who visits Nicaragua falls in love with the country and its people. Too bad it has a bad reputation because of what people remember from the civil war in the 1980's. Believe it or not, it's the second safest country in Latin America, and certainly safer than Costa Rica...don't take my word for it. Look it up to see I'm correct.
If you look for something different, i recommend Nicaragua. Not too many tourist (yet...) and some beautiful places to go. I highly recommend to visit Leon (take a sand board ride down the Cerro Negro), Granada (don't miss laguna de apollo, and try the canopy on the Mombacho), Isla Ometepe (better to stay near the Maderas mt.), Sun Juan del Sur & Playa Majagual.
