Nicaragua Flag

Nicaragua officially the Republic of Nicaragua , is a representative democratic republic. It is the largest country in Central America with an area of 130,000 km2, and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere. The country is bordered by Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south. The Pacific Ocean lies to the west of the country, the Caribbean Sea to the east. Falling within the tropics, Nicaragua sits between 11 degrees and 14 degrees north of the Equator, in the Northern Hemisphere. Nicaragua's capital city is Managua, with approximately one-fifth of Nicaraguans living there. The origin of the name "Nicaragua" is unclear; one theory is that it was coined by Spanish colonists based upon the name of the local chief at that time, Nicarao; another is that it may have meant "surrounded by water" in an indigenous language .

The Dry Season is the Pleasant Season to Visit Nicaragua - Nicaragua
The Dry Season is the Pleasant Season to Visit Nicaragua Nicaragua has distinct dry and rainy seasons, the timing of which varies from coast to coast.

However, the most pleasant time to visit the Pacific or central regions is early in the dry season (December and January), when temperatures are cooler and the foliage is lush. Most Nicaraguans spend the holy week of Semana Santa (around Easter) at the beach; all available rooms will be sold out weeks or even months in advance. To the new generation of travelers, Nicaragua represents booming beach breaks, volcano hiking, island paradises a...
