Drop dead gorgeous León (Nicaragua).

“Lots of people fall in love with Granada, but most of them leave their heart in León.”

Buzzing with energy and, at times, drop dead gorgeous (in a crumbling, colonial kind of way), León is a city of awe inspiring churches, fabulous art collections, stunning streetscapes, cosmopolitan eateries, and fiery intellectualism. Most of all, for me, it was a city of warm hearted, friendly people.

My guided tour of the university and city were awesome.

Next stage: Estelí and a cigar factory tour.

   
   
  
  

 

About Richard Griffith

My first independent travel experience was a trip to Israel, in 1997, it was here that I caught the 'travel' bug! In 2001 I took an 8-month sabbatical and traveled around South East Asia. Since then I have managed to visit most of Eastern Europe along with India, Bangladesh, and a few other destinations in between. I love travel and I love meeting new people.
