The colonial cities of Granada and Leon are leading tourist attractions with historic churches and museums, while the Corn Islands on the Caribbean side are a favourite for travellers seeking beach and nature getaways.
Holidaymakers can explore the country's thriving national parks and cloud forests that are home to an array of exotic wildlife including monkeys and colourful birds; visit coffee plantations or cigar factories; or hike to the smoking crater of the active Masaya Volcano.
Tourism in the nation has increased significantly over the past few years and places like San Juan del Sur are a hotspot for surfing enthusiasts.
