american accommodation guide

Over twenty percent of Nicaragua's territory currently lies in protected areas. It is now home to the largest region of rainforest north of Brazil. This wasn't always the case, but it means that the country has the potential to become a premiere destination for those seeking nature-oriented vacations or eco-tourism. The country is home to one of the oldest cities in the Americas, Granada, a city of colonial architecture that is both picturesque and relatively free of tourists. Located on the shore of Lake Nicaragua which is known to contain the only species of freshwater sharks, it is said to rival the beauty of its sister city Antigua in Guatemala.
