La Laguna de Tiscapa: Just one of the area’s many volcanic lakes, this is the only one you can zip over while tethered to a steel cable; or just enjoy the view.
Catedral Santiago de los Caballeros: This cathedral is standing testimony to the earthquake of 1972.
Plaza de la Revolución: Most of Managua’s historical sights are clustered in this four-block area, still the cultural heart of Nicaragua’s capital.
Malecón (Waterfront): Managua’s Malecón is the gateway to lakeside adventure.
Las Huellas de Acahualinca: This glimpse of Managua’s mysterious past is haunting for the questions it raises, not the ones it answers.
Chocoyero–El Brujo Nature Reserve: Located just south of Managua, in a gorgeous patch of protected hillsides and ravines, this community-based tourism venture offers some wonderful day hikes.
