"A lot better than 10 years ago !!!!!" Managua by jlanza29

Managua Travel Guide: 96 reviews and 354 photos

Managua is a capital city with no real tourist attractions. All places of interest are out of the city ......Canadians, and various European nationalities come to Nicaragua and head straight to the beach resorts an hour and half away. In the last 5 years major improvement have happened in the beach resorts.....but the city is slowly coming to life. Use lots of common sense traveling in Managua...leave all jewlery home, drive with the windows up and avoid badly lit streets at night !!!!! Cheap and decent food is very common, the US dollar goes a long way here. The nightlife is improving dramatically....with the right people you will find Managua unique !!!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:cheap !!!!!
  • Cons:Use lots of common sense
  • In a nutshell:Cheaper and less touristy than neighbor Costa Rica

    Great tips of Managua! I lived there for nine months 20 years ago. This year I will visit on vaccation - I both want and don't want. I have many good memories from Managua!
