Wander the cobblestone streets of Granada, laze on the white sand beaches of Little Corn Island, or hike around the paradise of Isla de Ometepe.

Lonely Planet writer Anna Kaminski describes why she loves Nicaragua. "I first got to know Nicaragua many years ago, when backpacking across Central America. I learned of the proxy war played out on Nicaraguan soil, courtesy of the USSR and the USA, and witnessed the still-healing scars from the conflict. Even then, Nicaragua struck me as an incredibly resilient country and Central America's ultimate all-rounder. It has a rich and fascinating history, and beautiful and varied landscapes - from barely explored jungle to arid volcanoes and windswept pacific beaches. But what draws me back, above all, is the warmth and tenacity of its people."
