Nicaragua posesses a variety of natural wonders so why not starting the day in Mombacho Volcano, a wonderful place to visit during the morning when the freshness of the air and a little fog adds a sensation of mystery. There is a pathway up to the volcano, flanked by natural beauty and dotted with gorgeous Nicaraguan orchids. From here you can also overlook the city of Granada and the 360 islets surrounded by Lake Nicaragua.
After the Mombacho you can visit the city of Granada, one of the first cities on the American continent (even older than Antigua Guatemala). The San Francisco Convent is a must-see if you're interested in the history of Nicaragua. Take a horse carriage tour around the city and enjoy the magnifiscence of colonial and pre-Columbian architecture of the city. Visit the ruins of the Xalteva Wall (that used to divide the population between Native Americans and colonials) or the Xalteva Church (home to the battle between Maximo Jerez and Cornel Jose Dolores Estrada). After this busy afternoon, try some typical Nicaraguan food in the central park: ask for vigoron (pickled cabbage with fried pork skins) and 'grass' juice.
After visiting all of this beautiful places, finish your day in a quiet and relaxed environment at restaurant Intermezzo del Bosque (located just 15 minutes away from InterContinental Metrocentro Managua). This restaurant is the perfect combination of good cuisine, local music and history.
Nicaragua is a warm tropical country, therefore light and comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended.
