Leon is Nicaragua’s second major city, home to many students, and full of political and artistic energy. Leon is an attractive city with colonial red-tiled houses and a cobblestone old town, but the street murals tell stories of the political turmoil and the 1979 revolution.
It is well worth doing a guided tour of the city here so you can better understand the country’s revolutionary history. Outside of the city you’ll find ‘Leon Viejo’, the ruins of the original Leon city which was destroyed when an earthquake in 1609 hit the city.
For those who prefer a bit of adventure, a hike up Cerro Negro volcano and then ash-boarding on the way down is a adrenaline-filled experience!
