Managua

Bride of Xolotlan

Nicaragua's largest and capital city, Managua remains relatively unknown as a tourist destination, though it boasts a scenic location on the southwestern shore of the Xolotlan Lake. Most visitors simply pass through on their way to Granada or Leon, yet for those who care to linger, a tour of Managua reveals a lively urban center filled with some of the country's most significant landmarks and museums. Home to over a million residents, Managua serves as Nicaragua's top shopping, dining, and nightlife destination. A trip to Managua also lets you explore the surrounding natural treasures, which include attractive lagoons, pleasant beaches, hot springs, and lush nature reserves. Use our Nicaragua trip builder app to arrange the details of your trip to Managua and other destinations.
