It is a poor country of the center America, that doesn't succeed in hiding the long years of the dictatorship of the Somozas and the weary civil war that has stain with blood the nation for every year '80.
In the faces of the people the fear is still read, the fear that liberty doesn't last, the fear that democracy is true, the fear of the poverty, the fear to do, that some intrepid fights with brave initiatives (to Granada to Len they have been open small hotels or coffee-restaurants more numerous than the few tourists).
Yet it is a beautiful nation from the climate infamous (damp, misty, often sultry) subject to disastrous hurricanes, with great volcanic lakes and at least two beautiful colonial centers, that would deserve best maintenance and an alive life.
