A weekend in Managua … don’t mind if I do …

So only two more countries to knock off Central America, so a little weekend in Managua, Nicaragua would be a good start – March. Of course, I’ve heard and read great things about the “safest” country in Central America.

As a rule, most capital cities are never that interesting, so the first instinct is do a couple of day trips from Managua and my high level plan includes:

  • Colonial Architecture in Granada
  • Beach & Church hopping in Leon
    o Centro de Arte Fundación Ortiz Gurdián
    o Cathedral of León – biggest in Central America
    o Iglesia de San Juan Bautista de Subtiava
    o Poneloya and Penitas beaches
  • Masaya Volcano
    o http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masaya_Volcano
    o Night tour of the volcano and birds
  • Omatepe Island – this would be highly ambitious to pack this into the weekend.

So Volcanoes, Hot Springs, Church photography and food … sounds like Costa Rica doesn’t it?
