You can of course always just relax on our property, taking a dip in the pool and enjoy the scenery. But for those who want some action, there are plenty of sights nearby. Our location means that in an area of 20 km (half an hour driving max.) you can visit national parks, volcanoes, crater lagoons and of course downtown Managua with a variety of historical and cultural attractions that transcend your expectations.
It doesn’t matter if you want to do it on your own or on a tour with a guide, we’ll set it up for you. Here are some of the options which are within your grasp. You can combine however you decide:
If Managua was a girl, you wouldn’t fall in love at first sight, but she’ll end up stealing your heart. As capital and economical heart of the country, it is definitely the best place in the country to try your salsa steps, see a concert or have some great food.
What to do? Wander around in the old downtown, go to the port Salvador Allende, enjoy a 360 degree view of the whole city, its lake, lagoon and volcanoes from the Tiscapa hill. Check out a baseball game in the brand new stadium, go to the local Huembes market for some souvenirs, or go to the Managua highlands in el Crucero whether you believe it or not you will need a sweater.
