Nicaragua's largest and capital city, Managua remains relatively unknown as a tourist destination, though it boasts a scenic location on the southwestern shore of the Xolotlan Lake.
Museum-lovers will appreciate ChocoMuseo and Centro Cultural Antiguo Convento San Francisco. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Iglesia de La Merced and Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Managua: Mirador de Catarina (in Catarina), Playa de Pochomil (in San Rafael del Sur) and Granada (Spas & Wellness, Guadalupe Church, & more). Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Masaya Crafts Market, pause for some serene contemplation at Santiago of Managua Cathedral, contemplate the waterfront views at Laguna de Apoyo, and get outside with MundoVentura.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Augusto C. Sandino (Managua) International Airport. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
