Nicaragua Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • San Cristobal Volcano

Why is Nicaragua considered a top bucket list destination?

Nicaragua is certainly a bucket list destination for travellers that are looking for truly off-the-beaten-path places and adventurous activities. Sandboarding downhill on an active volcano is surely an adventure of a lifetime! This country has 23 volcanoes of which 19 are active and many of those offer breathtaking scenery and hiking opportunities. When combined with the small number of tourists coming here, such a destination definitely deserves a place on a “must visit” list.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Nicaragua vacation?

Travellers who visit Nicaragua should definitely take a guided tour of beautiful Granada to enjoy its colonial architecture and take in the history of this region. However, probably the top bucket list activity is exploring the multiple volcanoes of this country - travellers can hike around Masaya or Mombacho volcanoes and enjoy the spectacular views. Those visitors who love adventurous experiences should try volcano boarding at Cerro Negro volcano.
