Planning a Nicaragua vacation is an exciting experience. Thousands of visitors flock to the country each year for a holiday filled with beautiful beaches, festivals and celebrations, and the chance to hike active volcanoes. There are a variety of hotels in Nicaragua to stay in, ranging from luxurious Nicaragua beach hotels to more modest family fun Nicaragua lodging. No matter which Nicaragua hotels you choose, you can look forward to great hospitality at an affordable rate.
The best Nicaragua beach hotels can be found around
the beaches of San Juan
del Sur. These hotels in Nicaragua offer everything
a beach lover desires. Visitors can look forward to warm
water, white sand, a lush tropical atmosphere. The weather usually stays in the mid 80s, although Nicaragua does
have a rainy season. One popular Nicaragua lodging option
is the Parque Maritimo El Coco Hotel in Resort located
just south of San Juan del Sur on Playa el Coco beach.
The resort isn't one of the typical hotels in Nicaragua.
There are accommodation options to fit a variety of needs,
from oceanfront suites to more modest villas.
The resort resembles a tropical paradise. You'll
be completely surrounded by tropical plants and encounter
a variety of birds and other wildlife. Outdoor pools with
jacuzzis are a great way to relax and enjoy your vacation.
If you decide to visit in the rainy season, be aware that
the roads between beaches in San
Juan del Sur can get muddy pretty quickly. If you're
renting a car in Managua and
then making the trek to pacific beaches, ask for a four
wheel drive rental car package.
Another great Nicaragua lodging option is the Barcelo
Hotel and Resort of Montelimar beach. The resort is located
right on the pacific ocean and is often considered to
be the best resort town in all of Central America. You'll
find several miles of white sand where you can play on
the beach of just relax while enjoying a climate that
almost seems perfect. While some of the beaches in Nicaragua
are virtually untouched by man, Montelimar is a well known tourist destination. The resort is one
of the most sought after Nicaragua hotels for people who
desire a complete vacation experience. You'll find
everything from large swimming pools, a beach bar, beautiful
plants, and of course a breathtaking view of the Pacific
Besides playing on the beach, there are many things
to do at the Barcelo Hotel and Resort in Montelimar.
Go shopping at the small boutiques
and gift shops or play a round of miniature golf with
your family. Unlike more basic Nicaragua hotels, the Barcelo
also features some fun Nicaragua
nightlife. A disco, casino, and outdoor and indoor
bars guarantee a fun night of dancing and socializing
with your friends. There are also great restaurants featuring Nicaraguan cuisine as well as
European and American specialties. The regional dishes
are available buffet style as well, so be prepared to
sample dozens of Nicaraguan specialties such as grilled
meats and plantains.
If you've had enough of Nicaragua beach hotels for one vacation and wish to stay in the heart of a historical city, consider traveling to the city of Leon. Leon is known as the intellectual capital of Latin America and is home to a number of colonial style hotels that have been restored to perfection. Consider staying at El Vento, one of the finest in Leon. The rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is extremely friendly, and the restaurant is known to serve some of the finest Nicaraguan cuisine in town.
