Introducing Caribbean Coast

There are so few places left on this ever less lonely planet so beautiful and yet so untouched. This enormous region of bubbling hot springs and soaring ceiba trees, white-sand Caribbean islets and endless tropical rivers makes up roughly 70% of Nicaragua’s total landmass. It is another world in so many ways, where tiny townships of Miskito and Mayangna Indians are raised from the jungle on slender wooden stilts, centered on their red-roofed and incongruously Germanic churches. From the cloud-forested peaks of the soaring Serranía Amerrisque to the wide and humid Río Coco, Central America’s largest river, you may encounter more challenges than usual exploring Nicaragua’s Caribbean Coast, but there are some vacations destined to become adventures.
