Tourism in Nicaragua has grown considerably recently, and it is now the second largest industry in the nation. As tourism to Nicaragua continues to grow, new hotels and infrastructure additions throughout the country grow too. Here are a few noteworthy happenings coming in 2015.
New hotel: The Inn at Rancho Santana – Located on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, the picturesque Â property of Rancho Santana will debut a boutique hotel in March: The Inn at Rancho Santana.

New airport: A new private airport along the Emerald Coast – A new small-scale international gateway will open at the end of the year. The airport, funded by Guacalito de la Isla, will be available to the public and surrounding properties, allowing for small planes and visitors to easily access the Pacific Coast.
Renovation: Aqua Wellness Resort – This eco-luxury property will enlarge its spa, plus add a swimming pool, new restaurant and new “treehouse” accommodations.
Situated at the very center of the Americas, Nicaragua is an ideal place to visit for anyone looking for something uniquely different and adventurous. In the heart of Central America, Nicaragua truly deserves the descriptive nickname of “The Land of Lakes and Volcanoes.” Visitors to Nicaragua are able to enjoy the natural beauty of dozens of volcanoes, rivers, and lakes, as well as two oceans.
Nicaragua offers an immense variety of activities such as visiting the Spanish colonial cities of Granada and Leon, surfing world-class waves, hiking up volcanoes, and zip-lining through the forest canopy. Ever-popular is the kayaking on the calm waters of Lake Cocibolca, also known as Lake Nicaragua, an immense lake with over three hundred islands and home to the only fresh water sharks in the world. Nicaragua is especially great for those interested in eco-tourism, and is home to a rich diversity of animal and plant species.
