Running out of tourist attractions to visit in Granada, I decided to visit instead the attractions in Managua. I took the public bus that goes to UCA Terminal in Managua. Cost is 47 cordobas per person or about US$ 1.10.

This is one of the attractions I visited with my driver/guide that I hired . There is a 10 cordoba entrance fee, free for seniors to enter. There are many restaurants located at this attraction. Nipa nuts located along the water can be used to eat the foods ordered from the restaurants.

There is a small park with a statue of Sandino and brief explanations of the revolution. A boat is parked along the Malecon, but there was no one to ask where this boat goes.

It appeared that the best time to visit this attraction is when the sun set down and weather gets cooler.

This waterfront area is a beautiful sprace with a lot of colourful decorations and pretty straw covered cabanas to sit under. This is a nice place to have a stroll and there are a few food kiosks with different international cuisines where you can buy something to eat. When we were there we were lucky enough to spot the resident crocodile swimming in the water nearby. This area used to be a dangerous area to visit, but it has been cleaned up in recent years and we felt very safe walking around here during the day. There’s plenty of parking and we paid 60 cordobas for parking.

I only visited in the evening. I don't think I would go in the day, Managua is just too hot. It's beautiful at night though. very colorful, with a lot to offer. It's not some historic, or cultural place, just a nice place for a date, or to walk around. There's tons of restaurants, although most of them play music way too loud.

Very nice place to walk by night, listen to music, watching people and have a dinner. Especially now in front of Christmas it is really beautiful with all kind of light illustrations. The area is safe also by night and is suitable also for families.

The "malecon" is a nice place to visit at night, but not during the mornings or afternoons. We went during the afternoon and although it was open, most things were closed. There is much improvement in the "malecon" and now you need to pay to get in. The price is per visitor I believe. There is security in the front who will also direct you to the prices in cordobas. We went to the malecon in the afternoon and during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic; and most things were closed. I imagine it is bustling at night; and much better. There is a go kart track and company and there is also a newer strip mall area being built at the end of the malecon. The infamous lit up trees are still there. The view is spectacular in the mornings and you can see the water and the volcano's in the distance. There are many areas to sit and they also come with shade.

It is generally a nice area, but I think we would have a better experience pre COVID-19 and if we went during the night. It is beautiful in the day, but not much going on and with most things closed; it could have been better.

The Malecon ("waterfront") on Lake Managua used to be a loud, seedy and at night, dangerous place. No more! There are restaurants, shops, a kiddie train, an old Boeing 727 (really!), and a wonderful waterpark for children. Admission is modest, 20 cords per person, about 60 cents per.

There is also a truly remarkable park containing replicas of nearly every Catholic church in Nicaragua. It has to be seen to be believed.

The shoreline features a number of the "Trees of Life", huge brightly colored, lighted metal trees, the initiative of the Vice President, Rosario Murrillo. Also called "Las latas", ("tin cans") behind her back, they became targets of the opposition during the civil unrest and popular uprising, beginning in April, 2018. Many were torn down, burned, etc. and never replaced.

A number still line the main road to the Malecon.

The area is now a family oriented location, and popular with Nicaraguans who can afford a day out in the sun.

This is a good place to go and have a look at, it is right by the lake and there is always a cooling breeze blowing in off the water which is a relief in the heat.
I understand that the structures light up at night and are pretty spectacular.

Nice area of the city. Always a breeze. Really stands out at night when everything is lit up and Santa is roaming around.
