If I hadn't stayed so many days in Granada I would have stayed at least one more day in León, but I was running out of time and had to make such a rush visit to this very interesting city full of history.

I tried not to compare León with Granada because I knew that the competition would be very hard for León. Fortunately León had its own special charm and I instantly liked it.

I found the murals, which you can find all over the city, most fascinating and took lots of photos of them. They seemed to be typical for León and nothing like I had seen anywhere else before.

    When you go to Rome you do what Romans do, do not be ignorant about other cultures, you do not impose yours onto other people, please educate yourself!!!!

    ... standard taxi fare in León during normal weekday work hours then was 10 cordoba per person within the paved city grid. So 50 to El Fortín (for 2 people) is probably okay... gasoline is expensive there (in 2005 it was about 100 cordoba a gallon).

    Very helpful warning tips, I'll make sure to remember them when I travel through Nicaragua.
