Geography Facts for Nicaragua

Nicaragua is located in Central America, and takes up a large part of it. It's boundaries span from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, north is Honduras, and south is Costa Rica. The country's landscape is really varied, from volcanoes, plains and lakes on the Pacific side to tropical jungles on the Caribbean side. The northern portion is mountainous, providing rich soil and perfect growing conditions for coffee and tobacco.

Five million people live in Nicaragua, with almost 1.5 million of them living in the capital city of Managua. The country went through an upheaval in the late 1970's, but has established and upheld a long-standing democratic government since the 1980's. A president and congress is elected every 5 years. The official language of the country is Spanish, but English is spoken regularly as well.

Being in a tropical climate, there are actually only two seasons — summer and winter — or as they're regularly described, the dry season and the rainy season. Summer is the dry season, and it goes from November to April. Winter is the rainy season, and it goes from May through October. The atmospheric states differ as drastically as the terrain — hot and dry in the west, hot and humid in the east, and cool and humid in the north.

The majority of the progress, development and groundwork improvements have risen in the western part of the country. On the other hand, the progress has been well-structured and developed. The nation's wealth , however, depends heavily on agriculture, but also the country exports gold, silver, and timber. Tourism is becoming a bigger portion of the development of Nicaragua.
