7 Best Nicaragua Instagram

The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Nicaragua

Nicaragua is a super fun country set between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It’s known for its scenic lakes, volcanoes and beaches, as well as pretty colonial Spanish architecture.

Planning a trip here? You won’t be disappointed. We’ve rounded up the most Instagrammable spots for you to visit too, so you’ll get that perfect Nicaragua Instagram photo.

1. Masaya Market

The local craft markets in the town of Masaya are a great day out. Expect colourful stalls selling souvenirs and artisan goods. While the main tourist market, El Mercado Viejo Craft Market, has a bad reputation for being overpriced, it’s a great Nicaragua Instagram shot.

2. Volcán Masaya

Want to get up close to a volcano? This is the ideal opportunity to do so. Still active, the volcano is a bubbling crater of lava. There have been several recent eruptions, so check the safety before you go up.

An experience for the real daredevils.

3. Granada

A picturesque colonial town on the banks of Central America’s largest lake. The city is full of pastel-coloured buildings and a great buzz.

Make sure to stop outside the golden yellow Catedral de Granada. Want a view of the rooftops? Head up to Iglesia La Merced. Every single corner of the city is photogenic.

4. Cerro Negro

Central America’s youngest volcano, Cerro Negro is an absolutely breathtaking sight. A 360 degree panoramic view at the top makes the steep hike worthwhile.

The best bit? Thrill seekers can “volcano-board” on wooden boards down to the base of the volcano. Insane, but brilliant.

5. Ometepe

Make sure you visit this pretty island in Lake Nicaragua. A volcanic island, it’s a great nature spot. Around 4 km from the beach in San Ramon, you’ll find a beautiful waterfall cascading over mossy rocks into a small pool.

The perfect way to cool down in the heat.

6. Little Corn Island

Little Corn Island is one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean. Crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling and the island is so peaceful. Take yoga classes or just flake on the beach.

You’ll soon become hooked on the local coconut bread – SO tasty.

The villa resort also has a fantastic spa and golf course if you need a break from swimming in the Pacific Ocean.
