Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. It is the ideal place to enjoy a pleasant and relaxing break thanks to its stunning coastlines, bathed by the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean.
This country preserves its extraordinary vegetation as well as the impressive monuments in the old quarters of its colonial cities.
Description of the area
Managua is the capital, and therefore the administrative and political center of Nicaragua.
Green is its color. We find this shade in its boulevards, suburbs, parks and quarters. An extensive green mass that contrasts with the rooftops, streets and facades of the buildings.
Managua has its own personality and shopping centers, museums, theaters, markets and the widest offer of hotels and restaurants can be found there.
Nicaraguan cuisine is rich and varied. Most dishes are meat-based, either roasted, stuffed or marinated with fine herbs and vegetables.
Among the country’s most popular specialties are Nacatamal, a delicious combination of maize and meat, Vigorón, a mix of yuca with meat and pork, or Vaho, a tasty dish made with plantain, meat and yuca.
Among its many tourist attractions are:
The historical city center
The old cathedral
El Palacio de la Cultura
Rubén Darío National Theater
El Parque de la Paz
El Paseo Loma de Tiscapa
Each of Nicaragua’s regions has its own expert tradition in varied crafts. Hammocks from the city of Masaya, ceramics from the city of San Juan de Oriente, marble statues from Nicaragua’s northern region, or black ceramics from the city of León are just some of the examples of the unique mastery of Nicaraguan craftsmen.
These and other products can be found in Managua’s markets or in the arts and crafts market of Masaya.
