Nicaragua is officially the Republic of Nicaragua, and it is the largest country in Central America. Nicaragua’s capital, Managua, is the country’s largest city and the third largest city in all of Central America. The official and most widely used language is Spanish, but many native tribes on the eastern coast speak their own languages.
The Spanish Empire conquered the region in the 16th century. Nicaragua gained independence from Spain in 1821. Since its independence, Nicaragua has undergone periods of political unrest, dictatorship, and fiscal crisis. The Nicaraguan Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s put and end to the Somoza dynastic dictatorship that lasted from 1927 until 1979. Today Nicaragua is a democratic republic and politically stable. Unfortunately the pillaging of the nation by generations of Somozas, and constant interference by successive USA administrations since Ronald Reagan have left the country struggling financially. However, the Nicaragua economy is growing in spite of the challenges, and is one of the fastest growing economies in the Americas.
The mixture of cultural traditions has generated substantial diversity in art and literature, particularly the latter given the literary contributions of Nicaraguan poets and writers, including Rubén Darío, Pablo Antonio Cuadra and Ernesto Cardenal. The biological diversity, warm tropical climate and active volcanoes make Nicaragua an increasingly popular tourist destination. As is the case with all popular tourist destination an abundance of accommodations are available.
