Cental American Geography: The Nation of Nicaragua

Nicaragua is located in Central America, and takes up a good part of it. It's borders extend from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, north is Honduras, and south is Costa Rica. The country's landscape is incredibly diverse, from volcanoes, plains and lakes on the Pacific side to tropical jungles on the Caribbean side. The northern portion is mountainous, offering rich soil and ideal growing conditions for coffee and tobacco.

Five million people live in Nicaragua, with almost 1.5 million of the people residing in the capital city of Managua. The country went through a disturbance in the late 1970's, but has created and upheld a stable democratic government since the 1980's. A president and congress is voted for every 5 years. The official language of the country is Spanish, but English is spoken often too.

Being in a tropical environment, there are really just 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 environment vary as much as the terrain — hot and dry in the west, hot and humid in the east, and cool and humid in the north.

Nearly all of the progress, development and infrastructure improvements have occurred in the western part of the nation. However, the development has remained well-structured and built. The economy , however, depends deeply on agriculture, on the other hand the country exports gold, silver, and timber. Tourism is becoming a larger portion of the growth of Nicaragua.
