Managua - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

The country is beautiful. Food is fresh and cheap. We have met some lovely people. - Dec 2021

Releasing endangered baby turtles into the sea at Playa La Flor was an incredible experience. Driving up to the crater rim of Masaya Volcano at night to see the lava swirling 1000 ft below should also be on everyone's list. - Jun 2020

There really is no reason to take vacation outside of Nicaragua as there is so much to do and see here, especially if you love nature. There are active volcanoes, beautiful beaches for surfing, Corn Island for snorkeling, Laguna de Apoyo, the mountains of Matalgalpa, Selva Negra, Finca Esperanza, and Granada for colonial homes and good food. You can volcano board down Cerro Negro. Our favorite trip is to Sabalos Lodge on the Rio San Juan (border with Costa Rica). We have seen monkeys, sloths, caiman, lots of tropical birds, sharks. Very similar to Costa Rica and the tourists have discovered this. - Apr 2018

Enjoying the beautiful beaches, exploring the volcanoes, hiking, and shopping for handcrafted items from local artisans. - Mar 2012

I love living here, the expat community does things together. There are many wonderful resturants and cafes. It's not true city living, which I love, it's more rural than a normal city. There is traffic, but not nearly as bad as many other places. - Mar 2011
