    Attractions

    Kids Saving the Rain Forest

    Kids Saving the Rain Forest is an Animal Sanctuary that does so much to help injured and abandoned animals. It offers guided tours which allow visitors to experience dozens of animals as monkeys, sloths, porcupine and birds. Well worth it and nice to know that your fee is going towards the animals.

    This temple is on a high hill and can be reached by car. It is an example of excellent architecture and is open to the public without charge. It has a wonderful view of Panama City.

    Truly a man made wonder of the world. There is a museum called Miraflores. It is nicely developed and well maintained, it is a four floor building with a small movie theater that show cases canal history.

    Located in the ancient downtown of the capital city, The national theater is a very special place with a lot of history. It's a great place to go and experience Nicaraguan music and culture.

    Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian

    A beautiful art museum in Leon. The largely Latin American art is exhibited in four houses, three of them adjacent on one side of the street and the other across the street. It's very quiet and amazing value at around $1 entry fee.

    Places To Eat

    El Gran Escape

    In a new location at the marina, it's also called the Runway Grill. Amazing seafood and the manager is super friendly. The service is impeccable. Try to get there for sunset.

    You must book early to get in here. They only have 16 seats and the best 4 are at the chefs counter so you can see the food being plated up. Very original menus using locally produced foods.

    Good food, with friendly service. This is a very low key, no frills place with a French like atmosphere. The sandwiches are very good, breakfast is superb. They have a good beer selection and their prices are very reasonable.

    This place is amazing. It's a bit out of the way and inconspicuous as it is located in an old house. Everything in the menu is really good. Love the outdoor ambient at night. The ingredients they use are grown on their own garden and you can see and taste the freshness in the dishes. Need to book in advance, they are always busy.

    James

    This is a traditional Nicaraguan steakhouse. The steaks (churrascos) are cooked absolutely perfectly and their service is very good. A little more expensive than other places but well worth it.

    Visit Laguna de Apoyo

    Lovely place close to Granada and Masaya for a day trip. The lake, the vegetation and the wildlife are great and there are plenty of places to eat.

    Get up to Telica Volcano

    You drive most of the way up to the summit on a very rough road. The last part is about 40 minutes on foot and is a moderately easy climb. The lava is 200m down and you can actually get glimpses of it.

    James

    Hike to Mombacho Volcano

    The Mombacho Volcano Hike is relatively easy, but a good walk - a bit less than an hour and a half. There are great views of the craters and lakes.

    James

    Ceeck out Playa de los Muertos

    The beaches in Puerto Vallartaare fantastic, but I think Playa de los Muertos is the best. Relax under an umbrella on golden sand and splash around in the waves.
