"Managua, Nicaragua, what a wonderful spot
There's coffee and bananas and the temperature's hot

So take a trip and on a ship go sailing away
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, olé!"

Guy Lombardo, 1946


Before Managua there was a Nahuatl village called Mana-Ahuac on the edge of the lake. Today we are left with a few remnants hidden inside a bustling city of nearly two million.

Mana-Ahuac Hoy is a small, family-owned operation that is dedicated to introducing visitors to this vibrant capital city and the unique traditional festivals around Nicaragua.
