Nicaragua is famous for its colonial cities, including Granada, the oldest colonial city in Central America. Visits to this Central American country, which is just north of Costa Rica, were up nearly 19 per cent last year, tourism officials told a gathering in Toronto on Wednesday night. Some 1.8 million tourists visited in 2017. You’ll also find an abundance of lakes, amazing nature, waterfalls and some 50 volcanoes, a few of them active.
Nicaragua has luxury resorts and also all-inclusive packages from hotels such as Barcelo. It’s become quite well-known for its eco-tourism offerings, as well. A Toronto gathering was told that Princess Eugenie of the British royal family recently became engaged on a Nicaragua Island (Calala Island) that can be rented for a week for seven people for a mere million dollars. Of course, there are more than a few cheaper options.
