_____________________________________________________________________________Treehouse Type View
Have you ever imagined what a treehouse vacation would be like in the tropics of Central America? To have a birds eye view of the turquoise Ocean, acres of greenery, a cool breeze, sounds of the ocean, and the thrill of being immersed in nature? Well, you are most certainly not alone.
Laguna de Perlas, Nicaragua offers the reality to your imagination with a stunning variety of flora and fauna. Monkeys, birds, butterflies and occasionally other animals like sloths, ant eaters and deer are seen. In the quiet and serene atmosphere, doing nothing may be just what you need to unwind. Meandering in the wild or reading a book may also be how you want to experience your treetop escape. There are also many activities for when your ready to do some exploring, such as snorkeling the Pearl Cays, fishing in the Lagoon, kayaking for some exercise, nature watching, and more.
Many are coming to Nicaragua to get away from heavily tourist concentrated areas. They like the idea that Nicaragua is still relatively unknown and that it has not yet been pegged as a tourist hotspot, a definite negative attribute to those seeking peace and serenity.
The wonderful aspects of Nicaragua have not yet been revealed to the public on a global scale and in a way, it can be theirs to discover.
Travelers want to go somewhere new, buy they still want to go somewhere that is safe and friendly. Today, Nicaragua fits both criteria.
This large rainforest region is irrigated by several large rivers and is sparsely populated. The area has 57% of the territory of the nation and most of its mineral resources. It has been heavily exploited, but much natural diversity remains. The Rio Coco is the largest river in Central America; it forms the border with Honduras. The Caribbean coastline is much more sinuous than its generally straight Pacific counterpart; lagoons and deltas make it very irregular.
Nicaragua's Bosawás Biosphere Reserve is in the Atlantic lowlands, part of which is located in the municipality of Siuna; it protects 1,800,000 acres (728,434 ha) of La Mosquitia forest – almost 7% of the country's area – making it the largest rainforest north of the Amazon in Brazil.
Nicaragua's tropical east coast is very different from the rest of the country. The climate is predominantly tropical, with mild temperatures and variable breezes. Around the area's principal city of Bluefields, English is widely spoken along with the official Spanish. The population more closely resembles that found in many typical Caribbean ports than the rest of Nicaragua.
A great variety of birds can be observed including eagles, turkeys, toucans, parakeets and macaws. Animal life in the area includes different species of monkeys, anteaters, white-tailed deer and tapirs.
In recent years, Nicaraguan officials have been nominating significant funds in attempt to attract North Americans to their country. The end goal is to make Nicaragua the third most visited country in Central America behind Costa Rica and Panama.
Much of this money will go towards helping outsiders learn more about Nicaragua by educating them on the country’s current political and economical state, factors that have made travelers wary about Nicaragua in the past.
In fact, according to a report published by the Financial Times, Nicaragua ranked third after Montreal and Toronto in the category of Strategy for Attracting Foreign Direct Investment.
Perfect weather, beautiful beaches free of colossal resorts, towering volcanoes (including the still active Masaya volcano), Lake Nicaragua (the largest lake in Central America), surfing town San Juan del Sur, and colonial cities like Leon and Granada.
And best of all, it won’t cost an arm and a leg to experience all that Nicaragua has to offer.
As Nicaragua continues to gain recognition, it won’t remain unknown for long. If you have been thinking about heading to Central America, consider Nicaragua, the favored hot spot for travelers in 2013. With all of the wonders of Central America, an exceptionally low cost of living, and a portion of the crowds, Nicaragua is the perfect spot to relax and experience the laid back vacation that we all crave.
You will fly into the international airport in Managua. Flights from the U.S. arrive from Houston, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Atlanta. Managua is also serviced by American Airlines, Delta, United, Spirit, Taca, Copa, and Nature Air.In July 2010, Nicaragua changed its fee to enter the country from US$5 to US$10. Try to have exact change.Tourist visas are not issued, instead tourist cards are provided and are valid for three months for US citizens as well as for people from the EU and Canada. There will be taxis right outside, these are relatively expensive (US$15 for the 20 Km trip to Managua centre) , or you can walk out to the road and try to flag down a regular cab. Some taxi drivers may try to overcharge, particularly seeing a foreign face, and may start with US$10, but a price around US$3-6 or 60-100 Cordobas is appropriate from the airport. You can also arrange a shuttle pickup to take you to nearby cities like Granada, a popular option for tourists who do not want to spend a night in Managua. It is recommended to have your hotel or language school arrange a shuttle when possible. There are also private services such as Paxeos. You can also fly into the tiny Granada airstrip from San Jose.The largest and safest country in Central America, Nicaragua beckons North Americans with its pristine tropical forests, beautiful Pacific beaches and historic Spanish Colonial architecture. Interest in Nicaraguan tourism and vacation homes has recently grown thanks to low crime rates, excellent value, positive press, government tax incentives — and prices lower than those in neighboring Costa Rica. Only two hours by air from Miami and with US dollar as common currency, Nicaragua is accessible for the discerning traveler looking for nature, adventure and culture at an excellent value. While citizens of most countries require to apply for a visa prior to flying to Nicaragua, citizens of Canada and the U.S. can simply obtain a "Tourist Card" on arrival at Managua Nicaragua airport for approximately US$10.00 for stay up to one month.
