Of Isthmian America, Nicaragua is the largest state but has a very low population density. The particular morphology of the territory has long conditioned the life of the country; since the end of the century. XIX, in fact, the United States took an interest in Nicaragua to open a passage that connected the two oceans (the channel was later cut in Panama), in order to ensure full political control in a region of great strategic importance. Indeed, US interference in Nicaragua’s internal life has been constant; also depending economically on the USA, the country inevitably distinguished itself by a more or less marked vassalage of the various governments towards the great power. In the history of Nicaragua, therefore, all the ingredients that characterize the entire region are found: a monoproductive economy dependent on external interests (first bananas and at the beginning of the 21st century coffee and sugar cane); a scandalous concentration of wealth and widespread poverty; political conditions of instability and violence as an instrument of the dialectic between the parties. The last phase of internal conflicts, that of the revolution sandinista (which ended in 1979) and the civil war with the contras (which ended in 1990), seems to have only marginally affected this picture. the scenario that is emerging is, however, that of an economic recovery and a more equitable social reorganization, provided that the traditional equilibrium is maintained. According to COUNTRYAAH, Nicaragua is a nation in North America, the capital city of which is Managua. The latest population of Nicaragua is 6,624,565.

CLIMATE
Due to its astronomical position, between 11º and 15º lat. N, Nicaragua has a tropical climate, but largely influenced by the NE trade winds on the Caribbean front and, in the interior, mitigated by altitude. Along the Caribbean coast the average temperature is around 26 ºC with very slight diurnal and seasonal variations; the trade wind constantly invests the Caribbean side, bringing abundant rains which, more abundant in the S (4500 mm per year in the area between the San Juan and Escondido rivers), gradually decrease towards the North and inland (2600-2200 mm per year between Escondido and Río Coco, 2000-1500 mm per year on the innermost areas of the plateau). Some areas behind the Costa de Mosquitos, sheltered by low hills that block the trade winds, receive relatively little rainfall and have temperatures of over 30 ºC, with peaks even above 40 ºC. Above 600-800 m, temperatures fluctuate between 14 ºC in the highest areas and 22 ºC in the valleys. On the Pacific side, the climate is always subtropical, but with lower rainfall (on average 1500 mm per year); moreover there is a clear dry season from December to May.
