Capital city of Nicaragua.
Safety: Outside of the capital city of Managua assaults and petty theft are rare occurences, however take precautions with your valuables, especially with cameras and jewelery. Within cities at night always take taxis to and from your destination.
Managua is quite spread out with no "downtown" or city centre (destroyed by Earthquake in 1971 and never rebuilt) so taxis or hired transport, preferably with a guide is recommended. City streets are unnamed and all addresses are in Meters or Varas from a point of reference such as "150 Varas South of the Lake Shore where the Old Tree once stood" etc.
