Nicaragua is a backpackers dream.
Boasting surf waves and sunny days, Nicaragua is a prime example of the quintessential traveling experience. A steady stream of backpackers find their way down the pacific coast of this cheaper alternative to Costa Rica. Here in this backpacker community you will find some of the best hostel parties, group activities, beach towns and surfing adventures.
Nicaragua thrives off of adventure tourism. Fiery volcanoes stand next to perfectly picturesque beaches and backpacker crowded beach towns. Ideal surf waves crash into the sand while reggae and rum pour out of nearby hostels. If you have ever wanted to learn how to surf and party, this is your place. Volcanoes stand tall and are as surf-able as the ocean waves. The jungles are dense and a series of colourful colonial cities compliment the already relaxed vibe of traveling in Nicaragua.
Sure, the country has experienced its fair share of civil unrest, but it is seeing a revitalization. Coffee farms, a volcano island, beaches you could only dream of and a colourful culture make this an ideal place for a backpacking trip.
