Nicaragua’s León is one of Central America’s most historic cities. Founded in 1524 on the shores of Lake Managua (Lago Xolotlán), León was moved to its current location in 1609.
León, the capital of Nicaragua during 297 years of Spanish colonial rule, is oft thought to be a more authentic travel experience than Granada, though Granada has more hotel options. Most León hotels tend to be backpacker hostels and low range hotel options, but there are few Leon hotel options of international standard. Fortunately there are two quality hotels in León that can be recommended by Tours Nicaragua.
