The national sport of Nicaragua is baseball, although boxing, soccer and fishing are also very popular. Because of the number of fresh water lakes, as well as the two coastlines, diving and surfing are also very popular.

Nicaragua is a very diverse country geographically speaking and so, near the coasts, there are lots of watersports, and inland, in the mountains, you can hike and bike.

However, Nicaraguans are mainly fans of their beloved baseball. The list of famous baseball players from Nicaragua includes: George Lopez, Dennis Martinez, Tony Chevez, as well as several other well known Major Baseball League players.
