Nicaragua.- Situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and bordering Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south, Nicaragua is home to beautiful beaches and tropical landscapes. “Nicaragua has the same geography of volcanoes, lakes, coastline, rain- and cloud-forests, however, with a fraction of the number of tourists compared to its southern neighbor,” says David Capaldi founder of Discover Latin America. Granada, Nicaragua’s oldest city, is known for its colorful colonial architecture and is popular with tourists. Just off the coast of Granada is Isla Zapatera, a volcanic island filled with ancient tribal petroglyphs. Several properties have opened in the country in the last few years, including the Inn at Rancho Santana, located along two miles of shoreline and featuring an art gallery and farm-to-table restaurant. The inn offers outdoor activities like mountain biking, surfing, hiking, kayaking and horseback riding.

The first luxury beach resort in the country, its accommodations include an ocean view, a pool and a personal butler.
