The Geography of Nicaragua

Good Morning! In preparation for my trip to Nicaragua on February 28th, I figured it would be helpful to start with some basic geography. Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, and is located just north of Costa Rica and south of Honduras. I'll be flying into the capital city, Managua, but will be studying the volcanoes in Masaya. Can you find both cities on the map? Hint: they're both closer to the Pacific than the Caribbean!
