TOLA, Rivas, Nicaragua (CNN) — Move over Costa Rica: Nicaragua is emerging as the new eco-travel darling of Central America.
In the past two decades, Nicaragua has made concerted efforts to increase peace and international tourism; now, it’s one of Central America’s safer nations for travel, based on 2017’s Global Peace Index.
The Emerald Coast, a 30-mile stretch of unspoiled Pacific coastline and dry tropical forest, is at the forefront of this “new” Nicaragua, breathing economic life into Central America’s poorest country.
Travelers who have pushed past outdated perceptions have been rewarded with pristine beaches and forests, world-class surf breaks, local hospitality and sustainability conscious luxury resorts.
