Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, rich both in history and traditions. Beauty can be found in every corner, but so can poverty; it’s the second-poorest country in the region, with 75% of the population living below the poverty line.
Though education is free throughout the country, schools and resources are hard to come by in rural areas. Poverty aside, this country is full of incredible people who just need an opportunity.
