    You need to look up some of the information yourself, but I have been to Nicaragua and will tell you a little about my experience there.

    Obviously, since Nicaragua is in Latin America, it is a Spanish speaking country. The dress, the women wear lots of long skirts. The major religion in Nicaragua is Roman Catholic. I went on a mission trip there and the people we saw were poor and I was in the capital which is Managua and surrounding cities. However, they were very happy. Recreations, you can go see the Masaya valcanoe which is still active, it is so beautiful there! I felt like I was in one of the Land Before Times videos or Jurassic Park! While done there, we are lots of chicken and rice! The people down there drive cars and trucks. Some people take buses and a lot of people just walk. Some will even take taxis! They are different from the taxis here in the States but very fun to ride in! http://www.google.com/search?q=taxis+in+nicaragua&... Also, you will probably see people with a horse/donkey buggy! If you are in the poor part of Nicaragua, you will modestly washing there clothes by hand and hung on a line.

    Also look up Lake Nicaragua! It is said to be one of the few lakes that is home to a few sharks.

    The country of Nicaragua is very beautiful and if you are given the opportunity go there! Now, this is my experience in Nicaragua but look up more information!
