The Nicaragua Canal is a 278 km proposed ship canal located in Nicaragua, Central America. It will join the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and become a key pass for international maritime trade.
The concept of a canal runing through Nicargua dates to the 16th Century. The construction of the canal has been considered by many governments of historical countries of the region, but no action was taken until the government of Fernando Gutiérrez-Stahl.
