Nicaragua Real Estateravel in Nicaragua

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America and it offers great opportunities for every type of traveler. Nicaragua is an exotic land of rare natural beauty, volcanoes, beaches, cloud forests, and spectacular Spanish colonial cities.

The largest and most centrally located of the Central American republics, Nicaragua equals England and Wales in size, but those 120,254 square kilometers are filled with some of the greatest concentration of volcanoes and inland bodies of water in the world.

The landscape of the country can be divided into three distinct regions: the Atlantic lowlands in the east, the Pacific lowlands in the west, and a mountainous central region in between. A row of volcanoes runs through the Pacific lowlands, that extends northward into El Salvador, and southward into Costa Rica-linking the isthmus in a volcanic spine that has helped to create the rich soil and turbulent geological histories of the region.

Known for its intriguing scenery and its friendly people it features an abundance of lakes, rivers, volcanoes, colonial cities, untouched forests and sandy beaches.

Is Nicaragua Safe to Travel?

Nicaragua's political history, along with the many natural disasters that have struck this land, made it a newsworthy country for many years. Unfortunately, positive news about Central America’s largest country rarely were heard, making you wonder if anything has changed within the course of time. Is it worth a visit?

The answer is a resounding yes. In its second decade as a stable, democratic society, Nicaragua is demonstrating to the world precisely why Oscar Arias deserved the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987. Following the Costa Rican example, its neighbor to the south, Nicaragua gives hope to other developing nations that democracy, combined with less investment in military and more investment in education and health, are the key success factors to development.

Your visit will only help reinforce the commitment of this country's bold efforts at reinventing its role as a leader of cultural, economic and civil society in the region--a role it relinquished for part of the last century but that is well within its reach during the next.

Is Nicaragua safe?

If you look at the country profiles for all the countries south of the border of the United States of America, as documented by the United States Department of State, all the way to Argentina and Chile, you will probably conclude that Nicaragua is the safest country of all.

Safety, in the modern world, can only be assessed in relative terms. Thankfully, Nicaragua has been blessed by relatively low levels of crime. And what crime there is has been “local” to the very remote northern parts of the country, and never directed at tourists.
