Seen by many as the intellectual center of Nicaragua, Leon offers energy and beauty in equal measure. A picturesque colonial town dating back to the 1600's, it has grown into a city full of political spirit, art, great food and buzzing nightlife.
The city has a fascinating history, having been relocated from its original location at Leon Viejo, which you can still visit today. The historic center of Leon is filled with stunning colonial architecture and museums, whilst nearby you'll find fantastic beaches and volcanic landscapes which are perfect for adventure seekers.
