The secret is out. Nicaragua is the place to be in Central America and has come into its own as a destination with something uniquely different and adventurous for everyone. From volcanic landscapes, fresh lakes, remote islands and pristine beaches to colonial towns and alluring folklore, the land of lakes and volcanoes is a nature lover’s dream. There are two seasons in Nicaragua: the rainy winter season and the dry summer season. The most popular time to visit is during the summer (December to April) when the landscape is lush. The Pacific side is typically hotter while the Caribbean side is more humid and rainy. Surfers prefer Nicaragua during the rainy season because the swells are better.
