Nicaragua: The Country and its People

Things worth knowing about a beautiful country with friendly, open people

Nicaragua is in Central America where North and South America meet to form a narrow point separating the Caribbean and the Atlantic from the Pacific. In the north Honduras and El Salvador and in south Costa Rica border on this country, which is the most thinly populated one in the region. Nicaragua has approximately one third of the surface area of the Federal Republic of Germany, but only 5.5 million inhabitants – about as much as Schleswig Holstein and Hamburg together. 43% of the population live in the country, 57% in the big cities.
