Nicaragua historical background

Inhabited by different indigenous tribes, such as: Chorotegas, Nicaraos, Matagalpas, Miskitos and others, till 1524 when the Spaniards arrived as a command of the Spaniard Kingdom, interfering and affecting the local cultures in a significant manner. Nevertheless, some natives kept their dialects and traditions even when there was a mix of ethnos and cultures: Mestizos and Mulatos, but all these made of Nicaragua a country with traditional food, dances, artistic expressions, legends and much more.

Nicaragua as Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Costa Rica, finally got its Independence from the Spaniard Kingdom in September 1821, and since then we celebrate our "Independence Day".

The following years till the present, Nicaragua has faced different natural disasters, civil wars and other situations, but despite all mentioned, the Nicaraguans are very kind, friendly and welcoming people that are going to make you feel as a family member.
