Lonely Planet – Best in Travel 2015

Nicaragua named the #4 country to visit in 2015 by Lonely Planet.

Here is what they had to say:

Nica neophytes have long been touting Nicaragua as ‘the new Costa Rica’. And in the sense that it’s cheaper, safer and less developed than its Central American neighbour, we can see why.

Nicaragua is a unique natural playground with a history, culture and cuisine all of its own. Nothing attracts backpackers like a bargain, and intrepid adventure-seekers have secretly been flocking to mainland Latin America’s poorest country to surf San Juan del Sur’s blissfully uncrowded breaks, ‘board’ down an active volcano near León, and hike through the cloud forests of Isla de Ometepe, for years. But despite the added draws of Nicaragua’s quaint colonial (albeit bullet-holed) towns, riotous folkloric fiestas and enchantingly undeveloped Caribbean islands, the stigma of its war-torn past has traditionally kept the wider travel community at bay.

Its status as the birthplace of volcano boarding is the first hint that Nicaragua is an adventurist’s dream. Try your luck at beating the km/hr record flying down steaming Cerro Negro on a custom-built sled near León, Central America’s oldest city, or strap on your hiking boots and attempt the summit of Isla de Ometepe’s majestic Volcan Mederas. A largely untapped surfing destination, Nicaragua also boasts one of the world’s few remaining coastlines where you can routinely get the lineups all to yourself – if you’re willing to sniff them out. As for the diving, the barrier reef system fringing the Corn Islands is one of the Caribbean’s most pristine.

Officially it’s eight days of festivities starting in late September, but the usually sleepy town of Masaya stretches out the feast of San Jerónimo, Nicaragua’s most famous fiesta, to three months. Fireworks, marimbas, parades, drag queens and more make it one to remember.

NY Times: Nicaragua/ San Juan del Sur is a must see in 2013

Nicaragua in the news again! Nicaragua named 3rd of 46 must see places in 2013

If the name Oliver North means anything to you, there’s a good chance that Nicaragua doesn’t jump to your mind when you think of a relaxing, high-end, spa-filled vacation. For the past 30 years, the country has been fighting its image as a land of guerrilla warfare and covert arms deals. At first, only travel writers took note; over the past several years, various publications have declared the country the next great destination. However, if the booming eco-lodge business is any indication, Nicaragua’s moment might finally have arrived. In and around the coastal towns of San Juan del Sur and Maderas, new lodges are cropping up. The food scene is getting a high-end makeover as well, with top chefs opening restaurants. The most exciting ones — El Segundo, La Casserole, Ciudad Lounge and La Finca y El Mar — are proof that Nicaragua is becoming an impressive food destination in its own right.
