Welcome to Bosawas Biosphere Reserve

Situated on both sides of the border between Nicaragua and Honduras, the Bosawas Biosphere Reserve covers more than 2 million acres (20 000 km²) and is home to thousands of plant and animal species, and nearly 200,000 types of insect. The area was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1997 and is the second largest rainforest in the Western Hemisphere. Visiting the reserve is one of the many things to do in Nicaragua. Tourists who make the effort to visit the Bosawas Biosphere Reserve will discover untouched rainforests and a rich array of animal life.

The official language in Nicaragua is Spanish. Some communities on the Caribbean coast speak indigenous languages. English is understood at some tourist destinations.

The currency is named the Córdoba but commonly referred to as the peso. American dollars can also be used for common transactions. Bills must be in good shape to be accepted and damaged bills can be exchanged at banks. Only some banks will exchange travellers cheques. All major cities have ATMs and most hotels and restaurants accept credit card payments.
