"Indeed, Nicaragua is now welcoming visitors with unspoiled coasts, socially conscious upscale resorts, charming colonial towns and its own live volcanoes. Visitors are drawn to Nicaragua's natural beauty, affordable prices and reputation for being the next Costa Rica, as coined by articles in the consumer press. Like its neighbor to the south, Nicaragua has ecological attractions such as live volcanoes, enormous lakes, rain forests and abundant wildlife For now, however, Nicaragua offers an authentic experience with inexpensive accommodations and cheap meals, even in tourist areas."

"The largest of the Central America republics, Nicaragua offers an impressive geographic and scenic diversity, including picturesque colonial towns, spectacular lakes and volcanoes, tropical rainforests, quaint fishing villages and long white beaches. While a relative new star on the tourism map, visitors nowadays find a solid infrastructure of upscale hotels, inns and resorts -- comforts that go along with such superlative assets as the largest lake in Central America, as well as the oldest Spanish city and the oldest church in the Americas."
