Wonderful Diversity & Beauty of Nicaragua

Nicaragua is increasingly being discovered as a tourist and retirement destination. It is a country of tremendous beauty and diversity. It is composed of three distinct regions; the Pacific coast

 and adjacent lowlands, the central highlands,

 and the tropical forests and beaches of the Caribbean.
