Facts about Nicaragua

Nicaragua is situated in Central America and is the biggest nation in the area. It crosses from shoreline to shoreline, from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea. It is bordered on the north by Costa Rica and on the south by the Honduras. A nation that is scattered with volcanoes and lakes, Nicaragua is home to one of the biggest fresh water lakes in the world -- Lake Nicaragua.

Several volcanoes in the nation are still active. One of these, Concepcion, rests right alongside Lake Nicaragua. If you scale the volcano, you can overlook and catch site of the town of Granada, the initial colonial village of the Spanish when they appeared on these shores. Another great volcano, Momotombo, lies similarly on the other great lake in the nation, Lake Managua, and looks down over the community of Managua, the nation's capitol city. Leon, the historic sister community to Granada, can be glimpsed from the peak of this volcano.

While Nicaragua is now a diplomatic, quiet democracy, it has stayed troubled with hostility and revolution in history. The most present hostility occurred when the Sandinista army overthrew the present ruler of the nation in the late 1970's, opening up the nation to elections and democracy. Many in the present generation recollect the movies and photos of the revolt as it developed. The nation is currently run by a president and a congress.
