Nicaragua


Picking cotton, León

Nicaragua is best known not for its landscape or cultural treasures, but for Contra war, in which the people rose up in hope only to be derailed by US-orchestrated interference. Since then, widespread privatization and deregulation have left much of the country unemployed or in a state of shock.

The good news is that throughout this period human rights have largely been respected and the country's battles are now confined to the political arena. Nicaragua is a fascinating destination for those travellers who have an awareness of history and enjoy getting to know the grassroots.
