    So you’re going to slide down a Nicaraguan Volcano – then you’ll need to journey from Managua to the town of Leon. It’s a pretty little place but the town is pretty spread out. Even with no urban planning, the town is very walkable – in fact I walked around the entire town in about 4 hours. In keeping with …
