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.
