Nicaragua, Central America's largest
country, offers tempting beaches and
outdoor activities centered around soaring
volcanoes and vast lakes.
The Pacific Coast village of San Juan
del Sur is a major vacation spot, drawing
more and more sun-worshipers amid a
growth of luxurious resorts. Among them
is Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa, which offers
an inviting spa and a 41-foot sloop for
guests to sail with a captain and crew.
An ultra-luxurious and secluded
option is Mukul, an Auberge Resort,

house accommodations, are locally made
from Nicaraguan teak. Here, in the lap
of luxury, you can unwind on a private
beach, treat yourself to a massage or facial
at the spa and play golf at an oceanfront
18-hole course.
There are many options for activities
around San Juan del Sur. One day tour
features a walk up 100 steps to the towering
Christ statue on a high hilltop. You can
visit Las Nubes Adventure Park and ride
an ATV to a panoramic point with views
over the Pacific and Lake Nicaragua. End
the afternoon with a thrilling ride through
the rain forest canopy on a zip line with
10 platforms.
Nicaragua is more than its gorgeous
beaches, however. Granada, on the shore
of Lake Nicaragua, is a charming city,
full of colonial buildings. A peaceful and
romantic place to stay is Hotel Colonial
close to the city's striking yellow-andwhite cathedral and lush central park. It's
an elegant sanctuary, full of warm colors
and wood furnishings. Two swimming
pools, each with pool bar, add to the
relaxing vibe.
You can spend a lovely day taking a
horse-drawn carriage ride of Granada and
a tour exploring the islands that dot the
huge lake. Another option is to hop on a
four-wheel drive vehicle in the Mombacho
Volcano Natural Reserve, exploring the
cloud forest and coffee plantations that
circle the Mombacho volcano.
At the summit, take in the 360-degree
panorama and walk the trail that curves
around craters, while stopping at points
for views over the lake and Granada. Here,
too, you can glide through a cloud forest
on a zip line that will be an unforgettable
Nicaraguan experience.

American country of Costa Rica is heaven.
