Is Nicaragua worth visiting?

Hi all,
What is Nicaragua like as a travel destination? Worth a stop-off on a Costa Rica holiday? I'm very keen on getting off the beaten track but would like to know how safe travel is in Nicaragua now? And whether it is worthwhile? Any recommended attractions etc? Thanks!


  • Hi Mike,
    If your name is anything to go by you will love Nicaragua. The tourism infrastructure isn't amazing but the hiking and natural attractions like volcanoes, rainforest and lakes are epic and very unspoiled. Nicaragua is actually one of the safer countries in Central America, but petty crime is still a problem and apparently is on the rise. Still, if you exercise normal caution you should be absolutely fine.
