I will be going to Nicaragua for my first time soon.
I hear Leon is a great colonial town and given the university presence has an active nightlife scene. Most people say stick to Leon and stay away from Managua.
I will definitely spend a few nights in Leon but I would imagine the nightlife options in Managua are greater. The metro area population of Managua is over 2. How is the nightlife in Leon and what places can you suggest.
Not shy about dancing salsa or other Latin American styles. I was wondering if you had your trip already and if so how would you answer your question about the nightlife?
About Night life is safer to go bar hoping in Leon and taxis are also safer and cheaper, so i will stick to Leon. Leon is safer with a young university crowd however Managua is more varied and sophisticated. Don't know much about Managua at night but it was unimpressive in the daylight.
I left and went to Leon which I love! Be careful in Managua at night!
Its true Managua has a much greater nightlife due to the population and size of the city. Managua is more varied though. Leon has a smaller more centered nightlife.
There isnt really a central district or downtown area though, so they are far between and you generally have to know where you are going before you go as its not common or easy or even all that recommended by most people to just head out walking until you find something you like.
Ryan O - sorry to hear about your experience.
Where were you guys at when it happened? We were staying at the La Pyramid hotel on reparto San Juan. Apparently it was not known to be to be too bad of an area for Managua.
Managua is a large dump,continue on to Granada,Nicaragua a very fine place that I hated to leave! This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
