Decided to get this book, since it was just released. Years ago, the LP books were just great. Gave you insight to all of the interesting nooks and cranny's of your destination country and gave lots of accurate travel and lodging information. That has steadily gone down hill and this has got to be the worst. I'm pretty sure these people never even visited some of these places - or they sent someone else or it had been visited years ago. Many of the facts [bus times, boat times, boat types, etc are just wrong - and I'm talking about things that haven't changed since my first trip in !
The book doesn't even highlight or provide information on some of the best activities - I mean some really cool things to do - it's not even in the book. Doesn't make sense.
Even the top 10 destinations are poorly covered. Take Vulcan Masaya - listed in the front on its own page as one the top things to do. Everything from correct information about the "parrots" at night, lack of information about the lava tunnels, vague information on how to walk to the top books says "it's a long hot walk" Come on, give me some facts, it's 3 miles and ft elevation change and will take you 1.
For example, we stayed at place not so highly rated by LP at Laguna de Apoyo. So, How was the place?
We extended out stay there twice. It was really good. At the beach town of San Juan del Sur, there's a beach shuttle from one of the hostels.

The time of shuttles are on this home made wooden sign hanging high above. It's the same sign from before The times in the book are wrong! Thank god that we had so little faith in the book we decided to stop by early and check the time.
If we hadn't we would have missed the only ride out to the awesome beaches on our last day. I can go on and on. I cannot recommend this book.

Why two stars vs one. Well if you had nothing or this book, it's still worth having. Only if you have no other choices. It really should be one star. If you're visiting Nicaragua, you need a travel guide, and you need the newest available information, especially in Nicaragua since things are constantly changing--a two or three year old travel guide is essentially useless.
And this guide does work. That said, it looks to me that the writers more or less just banged out this guide without doing the amount of work on the ground we users have a right to expect.
My recent experience was that sometimes the hotel or restaurant or museum may not be located where they say it is, could be closed forever, could be a block or so away. The accommodations could be a lot less than described.
And so on. Guys, next edition, spend a little more time checking your maps, checking out the rooms and facilities, checking out new options, etc. My experience using this edition was in the Northern Highlands. Perhaps a better job was done in other regions.
It seems that Lonely Planet has revised their format, and I don't like it as much as the old one. There's a lot less information - fewer lodging options listed, activities are described very briefly and in a way that's just kind of generic, the tone is a little more There also are hardly any pictures anymore.
Learn to surf before heading inland to do some epic volcano boarding.
The volcanic island of Ometepe is straight outta backpacker heaven. You can explore miles of dirt roads on a motorbike, swim under waterfalls, and hike a volcano.
Then there is the rum. The Caribbean coast is isolated, wild, and stunningly beautiful. Luckily, the Corn Islands are yet to be touched by the backpacker hordes.
This Nicaragua itinerary has you starting off from the capital Managua; however, you can easily start from the north or south as well. Soak in the vibes in Grenada before heading to Ometepe.
There are some great places to surf directly around SJDS. The quieter beaches are a short drive south.
You can check out more great beaches as you cruise the coast north towards Leon. From here you can carry on to the interior of the country if you wish, or you can head back to the coast to chill and drink rum on the beach.

If you still have a bit of time to work with you can head to the Caribbean coast, either by air or by boat. Catching a boat is way more fun. Like way more fun. Think untouched rainforest, dense jungle, and slow scenic travel.
Of course, this backpacking loop can be flexible according to your own interests and tastes. If you love Ometepe, stay there for a week. Show related SlideShares at end.
