“Billed as ‘quite possibly the Central American country that has it all: tropical rainforests and untouched beaches, fringed with palms, distant cloud-capped volcanoes, and recently some extraordinarily special eco-lodges’ by travel magazine giant Conde Nast Traveller, Nicaragua is an aspirational country for global adventure tourists who are keen to discover the next undiscovered destination. While currently suffering from civil unrest that is directly affecting the growing tourism industry, the long-term future must be optimistic for the ‘Land of Lakes and Volcanoes’.”
