Once you've “snowboarded” down the face of Cerro Negro’s black sands and climbed through the caves of the active and smoking Masaya Volcano, there are still endless adventures to be discovered. You can zip line through the lush green mountainsides of the jungle, or take a horseback ride or ATV tour for a more grounded experience. Walking by foot will slow you down enough to catch a glimpse of monkeys, sloths, and other jungle wildlife. To speed it up a bit, you can head to the shark-infested Lake Nicaragua and go wake boarding, tubing, jet skiing, or knee boarding with a view of the volcanoes in the distance. Surfing in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean in San Juan Del Sur also makes for an amazing way to spend the evening, as does hiking to one of the many waterfalls hiding in the forests.

While the outdoors is unbelievable in Nicaragua, the nightlife is also something to check out. Locals pride themselves on enjoying the finer things in life, and the big cities are not lacking in nightclubs, local music events, or festivals. Learn about Nicaraguan folklore tales by watching them acted out in at local theaters and carnivals. These fables passed from generation to generation and recount withstanding the hardships that this beautiful country has endured. Karaoke is a great way to get in some singing, as well as some laughs, or check out a local discotheque to show your dance moves. With no lack of love for music and dancing, this Latin country will be sure to show you a good time.

Nature, the outdoors, rich culture and history, arts and music, as well as a kind and warm-hearted collection of locals, Nicaragua is the next up-and-coming location for intrepid traveers. Embark on the journey now, while prices are still low in comparison to its Central American neighbors. View the wonders of this world from the eyes of a local, and fall in love with the peaks and valleys that make this tropical paradise so enticing. Whether hiking through the thick forest or walking along the concrete jungle, you're sure to get wonderfully lost in Nicaragua for as long as your vacation days allow.
