Nicaragua Culture

Nicaragua Culture is diverse, interesting, sometimes odd and inexplicable. It’s culture has been inherited by indigenous nicaragua people and also imposed by colonizers, its dances, folklore and nicaragua food teach us the way the “nicas” lived in the past, and how the new generation see the world around them. Learn the most important aspects of the diverse Nicaragua culture, from its religion to the Nicaragua education.

First off, Nicaragua is named after the “nicarao” tribe that dwelled on the shores of the greatest lake of central america “lake Nicaragua”…
…And the spanish word “agua” which means water for the great Nicaragua lake and the many lagoons and rivers boasted by the largest central american country. The current Nicaragua culture as we know it was inherited from the Spaniards that colonized most of the country back in 1522, they imposed their culture to the indigenous nicaragua people that dwelled in the country back then. One of the most popular nicaraguan dances, folklore and cultural expressions shows us what the indigenous nicaragua people thought of the spanish women when they along the conquistadores subdued the “indigenous people” in this region.

Nicaraguan Dance Of “La Gigantona” “The Giant Lady”
When the Spanish conquered central america, they brought their traditions, customs and dances. The spanish first brought this dance to represent their pride, dignity and nobility of the spanish crown. However, the indians whose land was plundered and women raped made a similar dance as a form of protest and satire against the invasive Spaniards. This dance is made by the “Giant lady” or “gigantona” which is a burlesque representation of the stature of the spanish white women imposing over the short Nicaraguan indians. The “Dwarf with the big head” or “Enano Cabezón” on the other hand, is the symbol of the dominated indigenous nicaragua people of this central america country represented in the stature of the dwarf. The big heard on the other hand means the intelligence predominant on the Nicaraguan indigenous people. Along with the Dwarf and the Giant lady, there will be a drummer enthusiastically playing the drum and “el coplero” , which is the man that will recite very unique and funny short verses.

The local food

“Some one said once: we are what we eat”, that’s because food is related to the cultural identity of a country.
This is not an exception for our Nicaragua culture. And when you think of “taco” you immediately see Mexico, and Nicaragua has its own staple food and very unique Nicaragua cuisine. In terms of food Nicaragua has mouthwatering dishes that will taste delicious in your palate. Among the typical nicaragua food, the most known are the following:

  • Nicaraguan nacatamal: which is a nicaraguan staple food eaten on saturday or sunday(don’t know why especially on those days ), it’s also served on other special occasions such as weddings, nicaragua festivals and “holiday Nicaragua occasions” such as christmas.
  • This traditional Nicaragua food is carefully prepared with corn dough that’s filled with chicken or pork, small potato slices, onion, rice, tomatos, all wrapped up in banana leaves(YOU DON’T EAT THE LEAVES!, YA HEAR ME?).
  • Quesillo: This Nicaraguan food is made with “tortilla” and cheese, the special cheese or “quesillo” is wrapped up in a corn tortilla, then onion, vinegar and fresh cream is added to it.
  • Vigoron: This typical Nicaraguan food is found in Granada, a banana leaf is placed on the plate that will have your yucca, chicharron, salad.
  • Rosquillas:the above picture shows what this delicious Nicaragua food looks like.They are traditionally made in Somoto Nicaragua.They are sort of appetizers, made out of corn dough.
  • Pinolillo: This drink has become part of the rich Nicaragua culture, since it’s served almost everywhere throughout the country and even nicaraguan see it as part of their identity.
  • The Nicaragua People usually refer to themselves as “pinoleros”, and if you look up the word “pinolillo” in google or wikipedia, you’ll find a picture of Nicaragua.
  • The beverage is served in dried gourd shell, and it’s a cornmeal and cacao drink.
  • some other nicaragua dishes are very similar to other central american countries’, however, the country has very unique Nicaragua cuisine and original refreshing drinks.
