Capture the spirit of both the 'old' and 'new' Managua on this 6-hour cultural tour. Learn about the effects the 1972 earthquake had on the city and the urban renewal efforts since then from a local guide. In Old Managua, visit Lake Xolotlán and the house of native poet Rubén Darío. Visit the National Palace and the Rubén Darío National Theater. Get a feel for Managua's natural features with visits to three volcanic lagoons.

What to expect?

*Description:

  • Managua is the capital of Nicaragua, located southeast of Lake Xolotlán and embellished by many crater lakes that give rise to its name, which means "next to the lake" in Nahuatl. In its center, there are shopping areas, museums, art galleries, theaters, markets and the largest number of hotels in the country. We will show you a panoramic view of the city and the historic center of the city (Palace of Culture, National Theater, and Old Cathedral); a visit to the ruins of the Somoza Presidential Palace where there have been prisons and torture rooms; a time to buy handicrafts in the market; and a visit to the colorful and new tourist site Puerto Salvador Allende on the coast of Lake Xolotlán.

  • The day does not end there, we also invite you to visit the new Managua with its modern shopping centers and its new Cathedral and at the end the Denis Martinez Baseball Stadium.
