Managua, the national capital, is situated 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Leon.
It's recommended not to limit your tour to the points of interest in Leon because the surrounding region has been blessed with plenty of terrific cities, attractions and landscapes. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Managua, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northwest, and Puerto Corinto 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the east.
About 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast of Leon is Managua, a regional city which is home to Managua Cathedral, Multicentro Las Americas Shopping Center and Masaya Volcano National Park. Don't return to Leon until you've spent a little time at Managua's Dennis Martinez National Stadium, Monumento a Sandino and Plaza de la Fe.
Being able to speak a few common Spanish words and phrases can be all it takes to transform a run-of-the-mill vacation and a journey into the rich psyche the Leon region. One example of a useful sentence is "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" (Would you like to dance with me?). And, for "This gentleman will pay for everything", you can practice the phrase "Este caballero pagará por todo" It's fun to give it a try!
Before you head back to your friends and family at home, you'll be bidding this special place a sad Adiós (farewell).
