Nicaragua - Managua & Around (Chapter)
This is the Managua chapter from Lonely Planet's Nicaragua guidebook.
Big bad Managua? Not anymore. With its war-torn past behind it, Nicaragua's capital is a friendly and vibrant (if not pretty) city with the country's best collection of cultural venues, nightlife options and restaurants. Escaping the big smoke is easy, too: day-trippers are spoilt for choice around here.
- follow in the fossilized footsteps of Managua's earliest inhabitants at the Huellas de Acahualinca
- check out the crumbling colonial grandeur around the Plaza de la Revolución
Coverage includes: History, Sights & Activities, Managua & around, Lagunas de Xiloá & Apoyeque, Mateare, El Trapiche, Pacific Beaches, Ticuantepe.
