Full description
Your tour will begin as your guide picks you up from the lobby of your centrally located hotel in Managua. Once aboard the vehicle, you will begin passing by the area's main avenues and buildings before ascending Tiscapa Hill, where the ruins of the former Somoza Presidential House remain. There you will visit the Revolutionary Museum to learn about the history of the Somoza era as well as Sandino. You can take time for panoramic views of Managua City, before transferring to the Central Plaza of Managua. This plaza is surrounded by the National Palace, the Old Cathedral, the former Presidential House, and a park. You can walk through the park, watching the locals living their daily lives, before arriving at Paseo Xolotlán on the shores of the lake. From there, you'll walk along the port filled with kiosks and restaurants as you feel the fresh lake breeze. The house museums and a mock-up of Old Managua are also open for visitors at this location. At the conclusion of your tour, you will have the opportunity to eat a traditional Nicaraguan meal in a famous Nicaraguan restaurant where waiters wear folklore clothing and traditional live music fills the atmosphere.
