Nicaragua is the largest country on the central American isthmus. It is the perfect place to enjoy a pleasant and rejuvenating rest thanks to its wonderful coasts lapped by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The country manages to preserve almost intact both its amazing vegetation and the old quarters of the colonial cities which still today retain their impressive monuments.
