Overview

The land of lakes and volcanoes, Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America between Costa Rica to the south and Honduras to the north.

Matador has information on volcano boarding on Cerro Negro, learning Spanish, watching a cock fight, and experiencing flow in Nicaragua.

Three Brave New Travelers, high school students receiving a Matador Travel Scholarship, spent time in Nicaragua, and you can read their stories here.
