Meet your guide for pickup at your Managua hotel and set off on your 6-hour exploration of Nicaragua's capital.
Visit the ruins of the Old Cathedral of Managua, originally designed by a Belgian architect in the 1920s and shipped to Central America. Irreparably damaged during a 1972 earthquake, just the eerily-beautiful shell of the building still stands.
Stop at Rubén Darío National Theatre, named after an influential Nicaraguan writer from the 19th century. The building miraculously survived the 1972 earthquake and is currently used for a diverse array of cultural performances.
The National Palace of Culture houses the National Museum the National Library and the National Archive. Enjoy a guided tour of the National Museum, which hosts exhibits of pre-Colombian ceramics and prehistoric bones as well as modern Nicaraguan art.
Eat lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) before heading to Tiscapa Historical National Park. Stroll through the verdant park with your guide, stopping to admire the statue of Augusto Sandino. Enjoy views of the nearby lagoon and the entire city of Managua.
At the conclusion of your full-day tour, return to your Managua hotel for drop-off.
