Nicaragua, set perfectly between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, is the largest Central American nation known for its dramatic terrain of lakes, volcanoes and beaches. The mixture of cultural traditions has generated substantial diversity in art and literature, particularly the latter given the literary contributions of Nicaraguan poets and writers, including Rubén Darío, Pablo Antonio Cuadra and Ernesto Cardenal. The biological diversity, warm tropical climate and active volcanoes make Nicaragua an increasingly popular tourist destination.
