Join the Bosa Family as they guide you through the ruins of León’s old city! León is known for being a popular colonial city filled with a rich history between its natives and conquerors, creative poets, such as the famous Nicaraguan poet Rubén Darío, and natural wonders, including active volcanoes. You will be able to experience this part of León’s ancient past at León Viejo, the remains of the first city of León. León Viejo is an extremely old Spanish colonial settlement, and today, because of its impressive archaeological potential, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The precious beauty does not stop with these ancient relics but continues with the surrounding natural beauties, including agricultural plantations, towns, and volcanoes. You will even be able to capture a magnificent view of Momotombo Volcano next to the shores of the glistening Xolotlan Lake. Afterwards, start off your tour of the modern León with a scrumptious lunch at a restaurant of your choice in the city.

After lunch, enjoy a grand tour of this state-of-the-art city as you make stops at parks, vibrant markets, and monumental museums. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to visit the largest cathedral in Latin America, where you will marvel at the intricate designs of the building and be able to climb up to the roof for a splendid view of the city. This tour is a great way to take a step back into history and really feel what it was like to be living in León Viejo, as well as the city León has become today.
