Best Free Tours in Managua

The capital of Nicaragua is often shunned for its lack of street names and districts shoved together like pieces of different jigsaws, but despite this somewhat disorganized appearance, there is much to discover here if you give Managua a chance. Book Free Walking Tours in Managua to delve into its turbulent and fascinating history, which stretches back 6,000 years. Join a Managua City Tour and learn how natural disasters and social conflicts left the city center in ruins, and how this area has flourished over the years to accommodate more public spaces and buildings. Your passionate local guide will help you make sense of this mish mash of buildings, and you'll learn not only about natural disasters and conflict, but also about revolutionary heroes and artists.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Managua

With Free Tours in Managua, you will learn how natural catastrophes have transformed the historic center of the capital of Nicaragua. A good example is the Old Cathedral. What was once a glorious neoclassical structure is now a church that shows traces of the devastation of the 1972 earthquake. Other sights you'll find around the famous Revolution Square include the Ruben Dario National Theater and the National Palace of Culture. Nearby you will also find the Simon Bolivar monument, the Sandino, Blanca Arauz and Ruben Dario House-Museums, the Malecon and the Salvador Allende Port. After joining Managua Free Walking Tours, be sure to stop off at the National Arboretum, a public garden divided into five zones. The entrance fee includes a guided tour where you can see more than 200 species of flora, including Nicaragua's national tree and flower.

Things to Do in Managua

Managua's best-known monument is a statue of Sandino, the popular Nicaraguan revolutionary, which is located in the Loma de Tiscapa National Historical Park, a wonderful park from which you can also enjoy a fantastic view of the city and the Momotombo volcano. But don't worry, it hasn't erupted in over 400 years! In addition, Nicaragua has been inhabited for 6,000 years, and the Acahualinca Footprints (near the southern shore of Lake Managua) offer visitors a window into this prehistoric era. The site is named after a group of miners who, in 1874, found the fossilized footprints of about 10 fairly tall people, as well as some animal tracks. Near the site you can also find a museum with a lot of really interesting artifacts including ceramic items and human skulls.
