Travelers who want to get to know the local culinary culture should look out for the following traditional drinks in Nicaragua.

Flor de Caña
This Nicaraguan rum is famous across Latin America, and you’ll find it everywhere in Nicaragua. It’s usually affordable too, so you can stock up without breaking the bank. The dark rum makes a mean Cuba Libre.

Pinol
You’ll find this cornmeal and cacao drink at most markets, where it’s mixed with water or milk. The sweetened version is tastier but the unsweetened version is definitely healthier. It’s a good shot for breakfast if you need something quick when you’re on the road.

Chicha
This fermented corn drink is found in various Latin American countries. You’ll find some that have hardly any alcohol at all, and others like weak beer.

Local Beer
The most popular local brews are Victoria and Toña. Both are light lagers and best served ice cold. When they get warm they’re not nice.

Liquados
These milkshakes come with any fruit currently in season. Try some of the exotic fruits Nicaragua has to offer, mixed with water or milk depending on your tastes.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
