I am going to Managua in about 3 1/2 weeks and will have a few free days, anyone have any advice for things to see/do in and around the city?

Anybody been there? Any stories?

You picked the last Central American country that I haven't been to. A couple of the guys I ran into down in El Salavdor had been there and liked it. They said the best part of Nicaragua was the natural parks and lakes and stuff like that...

go out to bluefields and then little corn island. I'd give my little finger to go. Been wanting to for a while now.

A good friend of mine went to Managua about a year ago and LOVED it. He's been to Guatemala and Costa Rica as well. GO GO GO!!

Be really careful of the block around the bus station in Managua. I just returned from Honduras and heard 5 seperate stories of people being jumped on the same 1 block. If you do get jumped you should write a story for [URL edited by moderator]
