Reasons to Visit Nicaragua......
Nicaragua used to be a secret. Pshhh, have you been to Nicaragua yet? That's where you really want to go, travelers would say. It was the land of backpackers and intrepid travelers. Tourists veered towards Costa Rica as Nicaragua's rough past plagued its image.
But over the years, travelers seeking a fun, cheap, and adventurous destination came here as an alternative to touristy Costa Rica and Panama once they realized Contras weren't still roaming the jungles.
So the secret's out, and Nicaragua is a hot destination spot for families, retirees, and backpackers relishing the cheap beer, hiking, and good surf. After visiting in December, I completely understand the appeal. Nicaragua is filled with amazing natural beauty and extremely warm people. I went in with high expectations and was not disappointed.
Though the country has been found, there are still many opportunities to wander off the beaten path, interact with locals, get in touch with nature, and avoid the hordes of travelers asking where they can get a burger. Here are my recommendations for the top things to see and do:

reasons to visit NicaraguaAdmire Granada
Granada has some of the most well-preserved architecture in Nicaragua. It was the first big Spanish settlement in the country and many of the buildings and churches in the Spanish colonial style are beautifully preserved (and painted a myriad of colors). Besides wandering around gawking at the architecture, you can take a kayaking trip to the nearby islets, enjoy hiking trips to Mombacho volcano, or visit the nearby markets in Masaya. While you're in town, be sure to eat at one of the kiosks in the town square serving vigoron, a local pork and cabbage dish that was delicious (and only $2). Kathy's Waffles and the Garden Café serve good Western food.

Surf in San Juan del Sur
A hit with surfers and backpackers, San Juan del Sur is the most popular beach destination in Nicaragua. All the beaches are beautiful and lapped by warm water. Here you'll find great surfing (expect to pay around $9 USD per day for board rental and $25 per hour for lessons), the second-largest statue of Jesus in the world (behind Christ the Redeemer in Brazil), and lots of cheap bars. If you're looking to party, this town is it. The two best hostels in town are The Naked Tiger and Pachamama (they throw a wild Sunday pool party too).
Visit Ometepe Island
This extraordinary island is located on Lago de Nicaragua and is formed by two joined volcanoes, Concepcion and Maderas. Hiking, kayaking, cycling, and healthy food are the island's main draws. Hiking the volcanoes is as hard as it appears; you'll need to start really early or the midday heat will slow you down significantly (I learned this lesson the hard way). The volcano hikes cost around $20 USD if you're part of a group or up to $40 if you're by yourself (hike with a guide as it's rather unsafe due to poorly maintained trails). Keep an eye out for all the monkeys spotting them was more interesting than the hike!
Visit new León
This city was Nicaragua's capital until 1857. To this day it remains the country's intellectual capital and is home to the National University. Remnants of the political war between the Somozas and Sandinistas can be seen in the graffiti and murals around the city. There are a lot of churches here, many art museums, and a burgeoning food movement. Make sure you visit the Museum of the Revolution, a fascinating museum about the Sandinista movement. The $2 entrance fee includes a guide. León is also where people base themselves for trips to the nearby volcanoes. This city was one of the highlights of my trip.
Visit old León
The ruins of León Viejo date back to the 16th century and are a short trip from León. The site is Nicaragua's only UNESCO World Heritage listing and is one of the oldest Spanish colonial settlements in the Americas. While this isn't some lavish ruin site, it's really the only place to see and learn about the country's founding colonial past.
Do a Homestay/Learn Spanish
Want to stay longer? Take part in a homestay. There are a lot of opportunities to stay longer, learn and study Spanish in Nicaragua, and farm. If this interests you, hostels and tourist offices in any big city can help organize this for you. San Juan del Sur, Granada, Esteli, Ometepe, and León are popular destinations for this.
Visit Apoyo Lagoon
Though lots of people visit Lake Nicaragua (which is the biggest and where Ometepe is), this lagoon near Managua is a nice spot to relax. You can sail on the lake, fish, and hike around. It's a beautiful part of the country.
Relax - Nicaragua is a great country to just hang out in. Sit on a beach with a good book, relax in the jungle, stay on the farm, surf, or swing in a hammock. The pace of life here is slow and relaxed, so slow yourself down and enjoy some lazy, wonderful days.
Nicaragua is fast becoming the new Costa Rica in terms of tourism, and I highly recommend a visit to this country before it becomes too touristy and expensive. I see the writing on the wall this place is going to explode with tourists even more than it has already. Nicaragua is a nature lover's dream: volcanoes, rainforests, mangrove forests, and beaches abound. Add in some adventurous activities, friendly locals, and cheap prices, and you'll see why everyone raves about this country.
I loved it so much that I'm already planning to go back there this spring.
