Nicaragua is one of the most visually interesting and photogenic countries in all Central America and yet remains relatively unknown as a tourist destination. Due to its recent history and social and political context, it is a place that seems to be frozen in time. Nicaraguan people are so open and friendly and always have a handful of stories to be shared. Its natural attractions and colorful colonial cities create the perfect background for any photographer to take the dream picture.
