Managua - Post Report Question and Answers

What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

Inexpensive. - Dec 2021

As far as capital cities go, Managua is relatively easy to live in. There are only 2 million residents and the city is spread out, so traffic is usually manageable. It is very easy to get out of the city and be on a beach within 2 hours. - Jun 2020

Managua is not particularly interesting but there are a lot of parks for families, including the edge of the lake where there are activities for kids and restaurants. Most of the major Hollywood movies come here. Yes, there is traffic. - Apr 2018

Nicaragua is a hidden gem, full of natural beauty-once you're outside of Managua. The weekend trip options are nearly endless. Another advantage is that domestic help is VERY affordable. - Mar 2012

You can save some money here, if you are careful. We have some very nice beaches close. The weather is lovely if you like it warm with minimal humidity (most of the time).The people are very friendly and helpful. - Mar 2011
