Nicaragua - Managua (Chapter)
This is the Managua chapter from Lonely Planet's Nicaragua guidebook.
Managua is chaotic and broken, poetic and mesmerizing, all at the same time. This low-rise city with its improbable trees, remarkable street art and spirited monuments also gives you easy access to nearby lagoons, nature reserves, beaches and hot springs.
