Nicaragua Vacation Rentals
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, located between Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south. While it has suffered through some political turmoil in recent years, this off the beaten path destination is now fairly stable and ready for tourists to explore its many interesting sights and attractions from a cozy and convenient Nicaragua vacation rental.
Home to three main eco-regions, the Atlantic, Central, and Pacific, Nicaragua is a land of varied terrain and untamed natural beauty that has yet to be overtaken by a tourism infrastructure. Lush and vibrant rainforests, coral reefs, and marine lagoons abound in the Atlantic region, while the Central area is home to rivers, mountains, and agricultural areas that can appease adventurers and explorers. However, the Pacific region is definitely the most popular region for tourists with its lakes, beaches, tropical forests, and volcanoes that are situated near many fine cities.
A convenient jumping off point for many of the Pacific region’s finest assets, Managua vacation rentals are ideal for soaking in a little history and enjoying the great outdoors. Within the capital city, the National Palace and the Cathedral are excellent representations of the colonial architecture that dominated the landscape before the 1972 earthquake, while a number of museums such as the Las Huellas de Acahualinca offer an interesting look at Nicaragua’s past. Surrounding the city, visitors can take a boat ride on Lake Managua to view the still smoking Momotombo volcano or they can pursue a variety of water sports at any of the volcanic crater lagoons (Laguna de Xiloa is a local favorite).
Situated on the largest lake in Central America, Lago de Nicaragu, and resting at the feet of the Mombacho volcano, Granada is a beautiful city that has been nicknamed “The Great Sultana” for its stunning colonial architecture. Guests of Granada vacation rentals
cannot miss a stroll along “La Calzada” to catch a glimpse of the colonial homes or an afternoon in the Parque Central (main square) for the breathtaking views of Granada’s Cathedral. The Church of La Merced, the Church of Jalteva, and the Church of La Virgen de Guadalupe are also worthwhile sights, while the south end of La Calzada is home to beaches and restaurants.
Offering quaint charm and a laid-back atmosphere, San Juan del Sur focuses its attention on the simple pleasures down by the sea. Along the crescent-shaped bay, guests of San Juan del Sur vacation rentals
can enjoy deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and surfing at Playa Maderas or sunbathing, swimming, and snorkeling off of the white sands at Playa Majagual. Horseback riding and biking along the coastline are also popular activities, as is hiking to the top of San Juan del Sur’s hilltops for panoramic views all the way to Costa Rica.
