Nicaragua’s colonial splendor, volcanoes, lakes and forests attract more and more tours each year. The elegant colonial architecture of Granada has beckoned travelers for centuries. Granada is Nicaragua’s most well preserved colonial city, with cathedrals and churches, and a beautiful central park and plaza ringed by grand colonial mansions.
Less elegant but equally interesting are working class towns such as Masaya and Leon. Each offers a different colonial experience. Centuries old houses line busy streets where the vibrant pulse of these cities permeates the air.
Beach goers flock to the coastal areas on both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea sides. There is the surfing mecca of San Juan del Sur on the southern, Pacific Ocean coast. On the shores of the Caribbean Sea is Bluefield or the Corn Islands where the atmosphere is distinctly Caribbean rather than Latin American.
Tourism is fast becoming Nicaragua’s top foreign investment industry, with international hotel and resort chains constructing facilities at a fevered pace. These new entrants to Nicaragua’s tourism scene are often pricey. A more affordable options to brand hotels and resorts are mom and pop operated guest houses. Following are some recommendations…
Ecolodge Blue Morpho – 300m from public access to the white sandy beach of Lake Nicaragua.
La Bastilla Ecolodge – Rain forest accommodation in the form of cabins or camping platforms.
Posada la Gordita – A traditional home stay guest house in the district of Zaragoza
