Nicaragua Information

In the north are the Isabella Mountains. The country’s main feature in the southwest is Lake Nicaragua, 148km long and 55km at its widest. There are 310 islands on the lake, with Ometepe being the largest. These islands are one of the country's main tourist attractions. Lake Managua is situated to the northwest. Volcanoes, including the famous Momotombo, rise from the lowlands northwest of the lakes. The main rivers are the San Juan and the Rio Grande. The Corn Islands are two small islands fringed with white coral and palms, popular as holiday resorts with both Nicaraguans and tourists.

It is a land of beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, rugged and tropical rivers, and colonial cities.
