Leon

4.2
Volcanos · Specialty Museums · Churches
A cultured and storied city, Leon attracts guests from all over the world, drawn to the second city's style, thriving intellectual life, and liveliness. Many of the country's most treasured poets were born here, and were doubt inspired along their way by the undercurrent of political awareness and artistic creativity flowing out from its university, the second oldest in Central America. Walking through the old center remains the best way of seeing the attractions of Leon. The colonial churches, residences, and governmental buildings have begun to crumble a little and are showing their age, adding an evocative atmosphere to the city's streets. Add Leon and other destinations in Nicaragua to your travel itinerary using our Nicaragua trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Leon

The central streets of Leon offer a wide range of accommodations, from extremely budget-friendly hostels to upscale hotels with all the trimmings of luxury. Catedral de Leon--arguably the biggest tourist attraction in town--serves as the hub for these lodgings, with a high concentration of options lining the streets surrounding it. If you want to stay somewhere a bit quieter and have excellent onward access for road trips, go west of the center along Route 14.
