Volcano boarding to the Sunday funday…Nicaragua is your central American mix of adventure and pub crawls!
Like with all Central American Countries, Nicaragua’s landscape and terrain will jump out at you. This hotbed of active volcanoes and jungles sandwiched between the Caribbean and pacific seas will blow you away and just makes this country amazing to backpack through.
Backpacking Nicaragua is a strange mix of being as relaxed as you can possibly get, having your adrenaline jacked up to the max with some crazy parties thrown in there for good measure. You may have heard of the ‘Sunday funday’ pub crawl, or a backpacker talking about volcano boarding or even people taking in old Spanish colonial architecture. Well Nicaragua is the country where all this happens. Oh, and it’s also the cheapest Central American country.
