1. Granada city is superbly clean with lovely, multicolored, well-restored colonial buildings.
2. The peacefulness of Isla de Ometepe with its intensive green colors, situated on the vast Lago de Nicaragua
3. In some areas the villages are picturesque, egzotic
4. Maybe the only attractive character of Managua is that the capital city is full of likable university students and they nicely fill the streets, cafes (27 universities operate in Managua!)
5. Foreign tourists are seldom victims of rip-offs; most of the Nicaraguans seem to be honest (not our waiter in Granada...)
6. Taxi is cheap in Managua, taxi drivers are correct
7. Feasting of a garlic-flavored lobster on Corn island
8. Visit the ruins of the oldest Central American town and one of the oldest Spanish colonial settlements in the Americas: Léon Viejo
9. Look round from the top of León's Cathedral
10. A 3-hours-tour in the Somoto Canyon
1. Managua is mostly somehow spiritless, probably this a longstanding aftermath of the 1972 earthquake which effectively destroyed the entire city
2. Nicaraguans are littering with full negligence.
3. Local Whites seemingly feel superior to the Morenas (mestizos)
4. In many smaller settlements, there are still visible signs of the destruction caused by the civil war of 1962–1990
5. Frequent power-cuts
6. Many freeloading, do-nothing teenagers are hanging around in the central park of Grenada.
7. At Masaya volcano the smell of escaping gas irritated my breath
8. mosquitos, bedbugs, spiders and some moronic creatures (in the shape of trekking companions)
