Nicaragua

Last February, Senior Editor Zak Patten took his family on an escape to Nicaragua. He says, "Nicaragua has recently been touted as the next Costa Rica by a number of trend-watching travel writers. While this may be true, what is without doubt is that the country is a safe, friendly, and relatively cheap place to soak up the sun during North America's coldest months."
