Culture

The merging of cultures within Nicaragua gives way to a country overflowing with positive energy, unbridled creativity, and a vibrance like none other. The people of Nicaragua are widely regarded for their warmth and hospitality towards foreign travellers, and as is the case in much of Central America, the values of family and kinship lay at the heart of almost everything they do. Historical traditions are passed down through generations, often expressed in beautiful arts and crafts (ceramics, textiles, wood and leather), passionate religious celebrations, folk music and world-renowned poetry. Known as the land of poets, and regarded as the birthplace of the Spanish-American literary movement, Nicaragua is teeming with skilled artists ready to share this country's rich, vibrant history with visitors.


Best time to visit

Beautiful and warm all year round, it’s always a great time to visit Nicaragua. With a climate that typically remains at 27°C across most of the country, it's a tropical lover’s paradise! Nicaragua is most popular in its dry season (Nov-May), where travellers can bask in the sunshine, warm breezes and lay for hours on white sandy beaches. In what is known as the “green season” in Nicaragua (June-Oct), tropical rains bring lush foliage, cool clean breezes and out-of-this-world surf swells.
