What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

The nearest beaches are an hour away. Within 30 minutes you can reach the Volcan Masaya, the town of Masaya (wonderful artisan market), the historic city of Granada, hike at el Chocoyero (parakeet forest/waterfall) and much more. Managua has some good restaurants, a VIP theater (order sushi and drinks!) and a nice and safe (but small) mall to stroll around. - Mar 2012

Markets, volcanoes to hike, beaches, one theater (for broadway type shows), boat trips, wonderful movie theaters, great resturants. - Mar 2011
