The original features of this free backpacking travel guide to Nicaragua include :

But Passplanet will, hopefully, be more than a free backpacking travel guide to Nicaragua
& Central America. My ambition is to make it a place where backpackers can freely exchange the latest info from "on the road" of the
Central American countries and communicate with each others. In the world of backpacking, information indeed changes with the blowing of the winds. But while a guidebook is out of date by the time it reaches the shelves, a web site can be updated daily.
Pass planet will strive to keep the budget information about Nicaragua warm !
But to achieve the above, we need your help & support. Passplanet is not supposed to be a single backpacker's journey and travel guide. There are too many trips ahead.
Nicaragua, Central America and the world are too vast to be covered by one individual. Let's share !
Everyone is welcome to join the backpacking adventure and submit travel information !
Passplanet is looking for new backpackers, budget writers, partners and ideas on a shoestring. And Passplanet also counts on you for its promotion. If you find it useful, please give the direction to other backpackers.
The more traffic, the more updated info in the future to backpack Nicaragua !
Passplanet is also a place of exchange related to Nicaragua. Beside all the forms which allow you to share your budget info about
Central American countries, experiences about a place, Passplanet also hosts a forum and a links section to other travel guide. You are welcome to submit your own travel web site in the latter and benefit from Passplanet's growing popularity in the world of backpacking on a shoestring.
Together, let's keep Passplanet as free & independent as a backpacker so more and more people can use this free travel guide to backpack
I wish you a good backpacking experience, on the site and around Nicaragua !

The relaxing charm
Description of Nicaragua ?
With a good mix of colonial towns, wilderness, beaches and local
hospitality, Nicaragua is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable country in
>> Why go to
Wander around the splendid colonial towns, visiting the many
churches along the way / Party with the local students / Surf big waves /
Enjoy a sandy beach on your own / Spot howler monkeys in a wild cloud forest /
Swim in a lake at the top of a volcano / Stuff yourself with pastries or
mangos / Relax and get your energy back
>> Drawback of
The need to cross Managua, the
dangerous capital / The costs while changing money means you need to carry
some US$ banknotes / The entry and exit taxes for a total of US$9 / The
humidity, temperature, higher cost, lack of transports and insects of the
Atlantic Coast / The need to leave one day...

There aren't any major cultural sights
but the two colonial cities of Leon and Granada boosts a fair number of
charming structures and a few museums / The complex ethnicity of the Atlantic

of Nicaragua ? The deserted wild
beach of Poneloya / The sight of the two Ometepe's volcanoes rising from the
waters of Huge lago de Nicaragua / The foggy lake at the top of Volcan Maderas
at 1345m / The surf spots near San Juan del Sur / Hiking near the mountain
town of Matagalpa / The jungle wilderness of the Atlantic Coast

main attractions. Another few weeks for an adventure around Bluefields ?
