Nicaragua - Leon & Northwestern Nicaragua (Chapter)
This is the León & Northwestern Nicaragua chapter from Lonely Planet's Nicaragua guidebook.
León is beloved for its grand cathedral, breathtaking art museum, hopping nightlife and spirited revolutionary air. Just out of the city, more than a dozen volcanic peaks wait to be climbed (or surfed). And the virgin wetlands of the Reserva Natural Isla Juan Venado are not to be missed.
- climb one of the spectacular volcanic peaks of the Maribios chain and sandboard back down again
- get away from it all in a beachside cabin at Playa Jiquilillo or Mechapa
- take in some street art in mural infested León
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: León, Pacific Beaches, Volcanoes, San Jacinto, El Sauce, Chinandega, Cosigüina Peninsula, Beaches, Reserva Natural Volcán and Cosigüina
