Loma de Tiscapa, Managua

3.3
Head into the hills to observe Loma de Tiscapa, a park and statue commemorating the great Nicaraguan freedom fighter Augusto Sandino. You’ll get to see an original tank from the time, and can also take a ride on a zip line if you’re feeling brave. The location affords spectacular views across the city to the sea, with volcanic scenery in the distance, so don’t forget your camera. Hire a guide to give you some background invormation about Sandino and the rebellion he led.
