The Lay of the Land
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America and occupies about the same amount of land as England. It is located in the heart of the Central American isthmus between the Caribbean Sea on the east, the Pacific Ocean on the west, Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south.
With 54,054 square miles, Nicaragua is divided into three very distinct geographical regions: the Pacific lowlands, the North-Central Mountains, and the Caribbean Lowlands also called the Mosquito Coast or Mosquitia. There are about 40 volcanoes in the Pacific Lowlands. The country has a total of 58, of which San Cristóbal and Concepción are the largest and most imposing.
The country’s most prominent feature is Lake Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America and the 10th largest fresh-water lake in the world with a surface area of about 8,157 sq. km. The lake is also famous because in it live the world’s only fresh water sharks. Scientists think the lake was originally connected to the sea and was cut off by an earthquake resulting in changes to the land formation.
Lake Managua is the country’s other important lake. There are several smaller volcanic lakes near or right inside the city limits of Managua. Laguna Masaya and La Laguna de Apoyo are spectacular lakes, which lie in volcanic basins.
Like other areas in Central America Nicaragua’s climate varies according to altitude with different regions of the country having distinct climates.
The Pacific lowlands are always warm with a moderating breeze. The mountainous region in the north is much cooler than the lowlands. The Caribbean part of the country is hot and wet, and rain can fall heavily even in the “dry” season.
As in most tropical regions, Nicaragua has a dry season or summer from November to May and a rainy season (invierno) which roughly runs from May to October. Nicaragua can be called the land of eternal summer in that there is not much difference in temperature from month to month and from season to season. In general, average temperatures range between 80 to 90 degrees F during the dry season and between 85 to 95 degrees F in the rainy season. The lowest average temperature is 77 degrees F and the highest is 104 degrees F. Managua and the Pacific area of Nicaragua are usually far less rainy than most of Central America.
