Welcome to Nicaragua – the off-the-beaten-track Central American country that straddles both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Boasting pristine rainforests, beautiful beaches, rich colonial history and more, you’re in for a treat and a sensory overload. Let Good Life Expeditions introduce you to the Nicaragua attractions in the city of Managua and the surrounding area on one of our trips to Central America.

Off-The-Beaten-Track Central America

Unapologetically chaotic and sprawling, Managua is the capital city and the beating heart of Nicaragua – a visit offers the chance to get under the skin of its people and culture. Unique in its near total destruction by a devastating earthquake, the city is remarkably new. Yet there are still loads of opportunities to experience the past, through the rich cultural heritage of the people and the contemporary Nicaraguan life today. Visit the colonial city of Granada, with its beautiful architecture, museums and artisanal factories for a glimpse into the past and take a boat ride through the islets of Lake Cocibolca. You can also relax on the beach and soak up the sun in nearby San Juan del Sur.

For more culture and history, visit the town of Masaya, with its handicraft market and the looming Masaya volcano.

Outdoor Adventures in Nicaragua

For an outdoor adventure immersed in nature, one of the most popular Nicaragua attractions is a day trip to Mombacho Volcano, one of the most prominent volcanoes in Nicaragua. You’ll hike through coffee plantations and cloud forests teeming with wildlife on the way to the summit, offering panoramic views of Grandad and the Lake of Nicaragua. The way down is a lot quicker with an adrenaline-inducing zipline tour, covering almost 5,000ft (1,500m).

There’s more adrenaline to be had on Cerro Negro Volcano, just two and a half hours from Managua. You’ll hike 1,600ft (500m) up the steep and difficult slope before sandboarding down in just 5 minutes. A real rush and unforgettable experience.

For coffee lovers, visit the sustainable coffee farms of Matagalpa, where you’ll learn about coffee production, enjoy the tranquil natural surroundings, and of course get to sample the delicious produce.
