Feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, Nicaragua represented a country where Macca and Brianna went back to basics, back to pure backpacking.
Nicaragua Travel Blogs
These are all of our Nicaragua travel blogs at A Brit and a Broad.
There’s no doubt about it, Nicaragua is one of the most popular countries in Central America and it’s a firm favourite on the backpackers trail. When it’s got more volcanoes than seems natural, simply stunning scenery wherever you go and old colonial towns that feel like you’re stepping back in time, it’s no surprise really.
When we were in Nicaragua we really enjoyed the lovely little town of Leon, but one of our highlights was hiking to an active volcano with QuetzalTrekkers. To us, it really felt like we got back to backpacking in Nicaragua, and our episode Travel in Nicaragua is one of our favs too!
With beautiful views of volcanoes and truly magical sunsets all around the island, Ometepe is well worth seeing while in Nicaragua.
Day two of hiking with Queztaltrekkers saw us hiking to the top of Volcan El Hoyo before swimming in the crater lake of Laguna Asososca. Another unreal day.
Day one of hiking with Quetzaltrekkers saw us volcano boarding down Cerro Negro in Nicaragua hitting speeds of nearly 100kph. Just pure adrenaline.
León seems to be one of those cities that backpackers and travellers use as a stepping stone in Central America, but it really is so much more than that.
