Valeria Espinoza of Gran Pacifica – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
Nightlife and entertainment in and around Nicaragua is very active and offers a wide variety for all tastes all year round. There are options for everyone. You can enjoy the loud and crowded clubs, discos and karaoke of Managua, Granada, Leon and Estelí or a more festive to relaxing beach scene on the west coast of Nicaragua where you can get a cold beer, a glass of wine, or even the Nicaraguan world renowned rum. Most of the places are open Wednesday through Sunday. 
 
Managua’s most popular areas are Galerias Santo Domingo, Chaman, Bello Horizonte, Zona Hippos, Salvador Allende, and many other places scattered around Managua. In Granada you will find many options, too, most of them nearby the central park and also on the shores of the lake.
 
If you are looking for a restaurant, wineries, and more relaxed or family places, you can go any day of the week.
 
For day entertainment activities, there are many options you can enjoy. Choose from a very tranquil activity like going to the movies or getting a salsa lesson to surfing in Gran Pacifica or San Juan del Sur, practicing Scuba Diving in Corn Island, do canopy in Managua, Granada or San Juan del Sur, do rock climbing, go to the shooting range nearby the Masaya Volcano, paintball with your friends, sailing and fishing, hiking, horseback riding and golfing.
 
There is something for every taste. I actually enjoy going to the beach at Gran Pacifica and sitting on the sand with a local beer in my hand and just breathe and relax.

San Juan del Sur, Nicargua beach bar – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingNicaragua is a very happy place. It depends on what you like but, we have different kinds of entertainment in Nicaragua. We have discotheques and bars, too. Nicaraguans love to dance a lot and drink a lot. If you want to go out for drinks you can find a lot of places to go. You can find different kinds of nightlife here and it all just depends on what you want to do.
 
The type of entertainment is different depending on where in the country you are. In Managua, Granada, and Leon, you will find discotheques where you can dance. At the beach, you will find more bars where you can also dance, but it is not like in Managua where you have a discotheque.
 
Normally, most places that I’ve seen where there are bars with music and you can eat and drink at the same time are very nice. What is different in San Juan Del Sur is when you go out at night, there is a street in front of the beach where you will find all the restaurants and bars, so you can be hopping from one bar to another the same night. You can just walk and it is very nice.

restaurant Calle Caldaza, Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingEntertainment and nightlife in Nicaragua are fun. For teenagers, college students and recent graduates, it’s fun. For older folks, mid 30s and on, it is neither Las Vegas nor New York City. It’s more “Let's have a drink at the bar," and you’re home at 9:30, 10:00. The culture here with that age group is they will be in their houses or they leave on the weekend and go to the beach and they have events or social gatherings at a house or in a restaurant with a view. They do not party until 3 in the morning.

They go out to see movies, but not dancing, nor clubs. It’s not like you leave your office at Friday afternoon and you meet your friends at a bar at 9:00. That won’t happen. You will probably meet them at 6: 30 and you are done by 9:00. I am talking about people in their mid- 30s and so on. This is the case with the expats and the local Nicaraguans. Expats assimilate into the culture here in Nicaragua, which was probably not the same type of lifestyle they experience in their home country.
