Nicaragua is one of the most beautiful countries in Central America and is slowly becoming one of its major attractions. One of Nicaragua’s most appealing characteristics is the variety of activities to do and places to visit. Adrenaline junkies and adventure seekers have always favored Nicaragua because it offers a perfect combination of natural beauty and activities that make your heart race. From volcano boarding to lakes and savage rivers, Nicaragua has all the characteristics necessary to provide a perfect combination of exciting day activities and a vibrant night-life.
Nicaragua boasts a whopping total of 19 volcanoes. Although 8 of them are considered to be extinct they have given Nicaragua some of the most fertile lands in the world. Volcano climbing is one of the premiere attractions of Nicaragua, especially for active volcanos such as the Mombacho or Concepcion. There are many reasons why volcanoes are a huge hit: simply achieving the feat is rewarding, usually offers an awesome view of the landscape and, depending on what volcano, you may witness lava lakes and lava pits inside.
Volcano boarding is a popular activity for both local Nicaraguans, tourists, and travellers alike. Although it can be found in a couple other locations, most volcano boarding tours are carried out in the department of Leon at the Telica volcano. It offers an amazing view from the top, a very healthy climb, and takes a lot of physical strain. Nonetheless, getting to the top of the majestic volcanoes and boarding down one of the sides is one of the most satisfying experiences in the world. Definitely, a must if you are ever in Nicaragua or Central America.
Kayaking & Rafting
Known as the land of lakes and volcanoes, Nicaragua offers the perfect setting for kayaking in calm and soothing lakes that seem to wash the stress away. Local kayaks are usually available for rent wherever there is a medium or large body of water. Combined with the seemingly eternal summer, kayaking offers an awesome activity that is both healthy and affordable. Rafting is available in many lakes that feed the amazing lake system in Nicaragua. The most popular destination for rafting is the Somoto Canyon located in the north of Nicaragua. The complex river system is located on the bottom of an impressive canyon for many kilometers and features small lagoons in certain sections.
Rappel & Zip-lining
Nicaragua has some of the most amazing tropical jungles in the world. It’s the pride host to the second largest forest in the Americas after the Amazon. It offers a perfect setting for rappel and zip-line tours throughout the entire country, giving adventure seekers one of the most amazing experiences of their life.
