Nicaragua, set between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, is a Central American nation known for its dramatic terrain of lakes, volcanoes and beaches. Managua is its capital city located on the shores of the vast Lake Managua.  To its south is Granada, noted for its Spanish colonial architecture and history as well as brightly coloured buildings. There are lots of crater lakes from volcanoes, rain forests and beautiful beaches with great surf.

It is not as developed as its neighbouring country Costa Rica, so it has a slower pace to it and is more laid back. The locals are super friendly and have time for you if you speak Spanish!

The temperature in January is around 31 degrees.
