Huffington Post:

Now, where to travel in Nicaragua? I have often been asked, where my favourite place to travel in Central America is and after having given it a lot of thought, I concluded it is Nicaragua. Now of course, currently in 2018, Nicaragua is going through some tough times, but tourism will return to Nicaragua and the doors will open to travel Nicaragua once again and when you do plan to visit Nicaragua, you can use this top 5 places to travel in Nicaragua video to outline my personal favourite places, cities and towns in Nicaragua.

Here we go through my favourite 5 places you should visit when travelling Nicaragua starting at #5 The Corn Islands. Off the coast of Nicaragua, Big and Little Corn Island are two paradisical chunks of sand completely surrounded by gorgeous water. Sit back and relax!

My 4th favourite place in Nicaragua is the fun beach party town of San Juan del Sur. A lot of people love San Juan as it is called in Nicaragua, and as much as I did enjoy it, I was not in Nicaragua to just party so I found San Juan del Sur fun, but there were other better places.

San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua:

The biggest surprise whilst travelling through Nicaragua was my third favourite place, Leon in the north of Nicaragua. A place I thought only existed on the tourist trail for Volcano Boarding, Leon is actually a very cool, and authentic city!

Volcano Boarding in Leon, Nicaragua:

2nd best place in Nicaragua is Granada and Laguna de Apoyo. The town of Granada is gorgeous and colonial and right beside it is the volcano crater lake of Laguna de Apoyo, a pairing that is an absolute must visit when in Nicaragua.

Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua:

The BEST Places in NIcaragua whilst travelling through, I found was ... ISLA OMETEPE. The island of Ometepe is a volcano island located in the enormous lake which covers a large area of Nicaragua and it is an unusual lost world that I simply loved. The video below shows us scootering around the island, one of the best days of my life.

7 Best Traveling Destinations in Nicaragua

No longer visited only by in-the-know backpackers, surfers and adventure travelers, Nicaragua is now a top destination for families and retirees too. It’s shed the image of a rough and troubled past, to become the second safest country in Central America (stated by the United Nations), and arguably one of the best bets amongst other inexpensive tropical havens. We’ll go through our 7 best destinations in Nicaragua of the moment below.

Nicaragua is a country of natural beauty and exceptionally warm people to match it’s warm climate. Despite getting more and more international attention, Nica is still managing to avoid hordes of tourists, instead attracting a different type of traveler. One that enjoys wandering off the beaten path, and connecting with nature and locals alike. And opportunities and deals abound in both real estate and business. It’s tough to pick the best destinations in Nicaragua, as they are plentiful.

Top 4 Places to Visit Nicaragua | Lake Nicaragua, Ometepe, Granada, and Managua | Let's Take a Trip

Learn More ▶️

Get Travel Ready ▶️

In this video, I take a virtual trip through Nicaragua and talk about the 4 places in Nicaragua I'd like to visit.

Would you visit Nicaragua? Where would you go if you visited Nicaragua?

Have you visited Nicaragua? If you have, I'd love to hear about your experience in that country. Do you go solo or was it group travel?

Have you lived in Nicaragua? If you have, what can you tell me about that country.

Lake Nicaragua
Lake Nicaragua (Lago de Nicaragua) is a vast freshwater lake in Nicaragua. In fact, it has an area of over 3,000 square miles making it the largest lake in Central America! It’s just a little bit smaller than Lake Titicaca. With a depth of 85 feet) Lake Nicaragua drains into the Caribbean Sea by way of the San Juan River. You can see the Pacific Ocean from the Ometepe Island mountains on the lake.


Ometepe is an island that rises out of Lake Nicaragua. A pretty neat fact is that it was formed by two volcanoes beneath the lake. The name literally comes from from the Nahuatl words ome (two) and tepetl (mountain), together meaning “two mountains”. At a size of about 107 square miles, it’s the largest island in the lake and currently estimates an influx of around 60,000 travelers each year. Reportedly, the best time of the year to visit is between mid-November and mid-May.


With an estimated population of around 125,000, Granada is Nicaragua’s sixth most populous city. It is also, historically, one of the country’s most important cities both economically and politically. Of possible interest t the traveler is the fact that it has a thriving Indigenous population. The city is also known as La Gran Sultana (The Great Sultana), which reflects Granada’s Moorish and Andalusian appearance.


Managua is the capital and largest city of Nicaragua. It was founded as a pre-Columbian fishing town and, in 1819, it was incorporated and named “Leal Villa de Santiago de Managua” (Loyal Villa of Santiago de Managua). Managua is situated on the southwestern shore of Lake Managua. The population is estimated at around 1 million and was declared the capital in 1852.

The Best of the Nicaraguan Cities and the Coast

For more stories, tips and information about our Life Redesign or Travel Inspiration you can find them at:

Our Itinerary: Nicaraguan cities and the Pacific coast

Our trip started in Granada, remembering our time when we visited last year, walking the colonial streets, drinking cold beers at the Calzada, taking Spanish classes and staying with a family, and wandering through the vibrant food and merchandise market. In Granada, we stayed at the lovely Casa Silas B&B – a two room, colonial house equipped with dip pool and the best breakfast frittata included in your nights stay. Our next stop was León We took a local bus there our first trip seeing this city, the second largest of the Nicaraguan cities, (Managua the largest ) León is much rawer than Granada, rather than being entirely filled with colonial buildings, it exudes a colonial and industrial feel. Most of our exploring of the city was wandering around the whitewashed cathedrals, watching several holiday parades and Catholic festivities, and discovering that León, hands down has the best restaurants of all the Nicaraguan Cities.

Las Peñitas

A short 20minute bus trip took us to the coastal town of Las Peñitas. An area that has an excellent reputation for surfing sunbathing and relaxing. It certainly delivers on all of this. Despite its well-known reputation, Las Peñitas is surprisingly underdeveloped with some comfortable spots for food, drink, and lodging but still maintains a touristy yet local approach. Best time to visit is Sundays; it's teeming with families and León tourists ready to surf and enjoy the day. We stayed on the beach at the simple, and comfortable Simple Beach House.

Salinas Grandes

Further south past Las Peñitas is Salinas Grandes, or “Big Salt.” This area is an entirely different vibe. Rugged roads get you into the Salt Flats – where salt processing plants harvest huge mounds of salt. About 20minutes later by 4x4 (ideally as in rainy season the roads can be washed out) you reach the beach area of Salinas and view some of the most secluded, quiet beach areas we have ever seen. There are Incredible surf waves right at your doorstep and miles of beach where virtually no one is around. We kicked back at this stunning and affordable ocean front villa (owned by a friend and marketing client of mine ) for a few nights. We definitely need to get back there again very soon! We missed out on visiting Ometepe Island this time around, although we have lots of great tips after spending 2 months living there last year. You can find our posts on Ometepe and Nicaragua here.
