Travelling is freedom - Basti´s global journeys

Nicaragua

Nicaragua has had a difficult and troubled recent history: first the Spanish exploited them, then the Americans took over and finally four decades of authoritarian rule and dictatorship gave it the rest. Moreover, its location close to several tectonic plates makes it prone to natural disasters, which can be devastating in a poor country with little infrastructure. However, Nicaragua is on a good way and nowadays it is not only one of the safest countries in Central America, but also one of the cheapest. Furthermore, the people are amazing and the nature dotted by volcanoes, two oceans and plenty of lush jungle.
