    Pocket Guide: Nicaragua

    With both Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, vast swathes of uninhabited jungle, colourful cities and welcoming people, Nicaragua is a country very much on the up and a great place to book a hotel. It’s becoming one of Central America’s must visit tourist destinations, with volcanic good looks, delicious food and beautiful handicrafts. The capital, Managua, is one of the region’s biggest cities and the twin jewels of Leon and Granada offer colonial charm and bags of personality. Add in some volcanic crater lakes, a twin caldera island and an improving ecological outlook and it’s quite a package.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in Nicaragua

    Managua - The sprawling capital was decimated first by earthquake, then by civil war but its ramshackle and chaotic vibe is all part of its charm.

    Granada - Brightly coloured, single story colonial facades give way to lush courtyards in this fun city situated right on the lake shore. This is an excellent place to book a hotel.

    Leon - A stunning white cathedral dominates the city in this one-time Sandinista stronghold. A young crowd keeps the spirit fun and lively. Join the party in Leon from your Nicaragua hotel.

    Ometepe Island - A twin volcano jutting out of a lake forms this totally unique destination. With a relaxed vibe that feels more like the Caribbean, it’s also said to be one of the safest places to book a hotel in Central America.

    Pacific Coast - More accessible than the densely populated, English-speaking east coast. The waves here are big, which has made an internationally popular surfing destination, and its beachside hotels are absolutely lush.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Nicaragua

    The capital Managua is mostly just a stopping point, having been badly affected by earthquake and war. Many of the roads still lack names but amidst the chaos are some great markets. The beautiful cities of Leon and Granada are both brightly coloured and have a long history of opposition - liberal Leon against conservative Granada - but both are worth exploring. Spend a few days exploring and climbing the volcanoes of Ometepe, and take a swim in the stunning Laguna de Apoyo, a vast volcanic crater that has filled with mineral water. It’s also fascinating to visit the memorials and museums dedicated to explaining the country’s long and bloody civil war, that thankfully is long finished.

    Things to Do When You Book a Nicaragua Hotel

    With numerous active and dormant volcanoes across the country, you can explore the national parks that surround them. Or have a go at one of the world’s newest extreme sports - volcano boarding. On the Pacific coast, the surf season is known to be one of the best in the world, with an increasing amount of surf schools. And wherever you go, try and ride the local brightly painted ‘chicken buses’ for a ride of a lifetime. Just don’t expect much leg room, or even a seat for that matter.

    "Nice location of Hotel"
    Everything was fine at the hotel, room, staff, room service was a plus, good breakfast, just some discrepancy on the size of beds. We used a double room with two queen beds, according to the hotel advertising, but the real size is full beds, makes it a little uncomfortable for three adult people.

    "Safe and conveniently close to the airport"
    We were greeted warmly by staff, checked in quickly, offered a crib for our son free of charge and escorted to our room with our bags. The gentleman who helped us with our bags adjusted the air conditioning for us, adjusted the blinds and explained a few things about the hotel. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was well priced and delicious. The facilities are very clean and the kiddie pool was appreciated by our 2 year old son. We had to leave at 4 am so unfortunately we did not get to enjoy the breakfast. The shuttles don't start running until 5 am so we requested a taxi for 6 people and the front desk arranged for a free shuttle anyways, which was really appreciated. This hotel is like a little oasis just a few minutes drive from the airport.

    "Incredible view, relaxing, and the BEST staff."
    My boyfriend and I came to Nicaragua to really escape our day to day craziness. Aqua was the perfect spot! The staff is clearly well trained in how to be engaging with guests when it's appropriate, and when to give guests their privacy. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. We were both really, really impressed. Most of the staff were so young! But so, so kind, friendly and professional. Fidel, Jenny, Hamilton, Jabrin, Jon Carlos and I know there are so many names I'm not remembering! They helped make our experience so enjoyable!!!

    "Great Location"
    The hotel is in a great location, right by the Cathedral and in a great area to walk around. The lady at the front desk, Karen, was exceptional. I had a rough trip prior to arriving to the hotel, and it was very obvious that I was flustered and upset. She did everything she could to make me feel comfortable. She even brought food to my room despite the fact that they don't have room service. That was on of the downfalls, as well as no hot water in my room. Great breakfast, though!
