    Lakefront fun in Managua

    Cultural attractions and lakeside fun draw travelers to Managua, where family-friendly parks mingle with tasty local restaurants along a backdrop of sparkling waters and palm-lined streets. The city is Nicaragua's capital, so there are plenty of historic sites to visit to learn more about the heritage of the Central American country, while excursions out of town lead to nearby volcanoes for thrilling adventures like sandboarding and zip lining. When the time comes to pick your Managua vacation rental, you'll have your choice of styles and amenities, from villas with pools and modern apartments to traditional casitas with lush, forest views.

    Seeing the sights on Managua's waterfront

    Lake Managua is the focal point of the city, so spending some time on the waterfront here is a must. Take the family for a sightseeing stroll at Puerto Salvador Allende, the lakeside port area shaded by palm trees and packed with open-air restaurants. There are wide sidewalks here, with long, colorful benches to sit and enjoy the views over the lake or to lounge with a drink while watching the sunset reflecting off the ripples. If you keep walking along the waterfront, you'll stumble upon some cool art installations and play areas for the kids to explore.

    Uncover old Nicaragua in Managua

    To peek back at the history of Managua, head to the National Assembly Pedestrian Walk, where the story of Nicaragua is told through photographs and open-air exhibits. Nearby, on Revolution Square, you'll find the National Palace of Culture, which houses the National Museum of Nicaragua. Inside, you can tour more than a dozen exhibit halls that delve into the country's archaeology, paleontology, arts, lifestyle, food and more. The picturesque Old Cathedral of Managua is also on the square, and though you can't go inside since the building was condemned after earthquake damage, you can still photograph the incredible neoclassical facade.

    Warm winters in Managua

    Managua is an ideal spot to escape the winter cold, since its Central American location means a warm, tropical climate year-round. November through April is the dry season here, with average highs in the 80s, perfect for enjoying the great outdoors by hiking and picnicking at local parks around the lake and walking along downtown streets to photograph the historic monuments and squares. Since this is a popular time to visit, you'll want to arrange your Managua vacation rental early to ensure you grab your ideal dates. The rains set in come May, but the large city has lots of stores and museums where you can wait out the showers indoors.

    Get back to nature in fascinating Managua

    The lakefront locale here means lots of local parks and preserves to explore around your Managua vacation rental, like the Chiltepe Peninsula Natural Reserve, which is home to 100s of bird species, as well as land critters and marine life. A handful of small crater lakes are scattered throughout town, too. Tiscapa Lagoon Natural Reserve is a popular spot to enjoy the great outdoors, within the city, at the site of a volcanic lagoon formed 1000s of years ago. Canopy tours here offer elevated views over the crater and the old downtown area that was destroyed in an earthquake.
