The colonial cities of Nicaragua are a hidden gem in Central America. The university city of Leon in the north of the country has fine colonial architecture, numerous museums and an impressive cathedral. It is surrounded by imposing volcanic countryside that offers a variety of day trips out from the city. Granada is a vibrant colourful city, again with impressive colonial architectures. Its position on the shores of Lake Nicaragua allows for daily excursions onto the lake and the Isletas Islands, and on a clear day, excellent views of Ometepe Island. End the trip on the Pacific Coast for a few days' relaxation.
