Is Managua a somewhat safe place for a vacation? I have been to Leon and Granada and they were both nice vacations for an older single guy.

Your most immediate hazard will be the traffic. Statistically MGA is no more dangerous than chicago and safer than CR. Have your radar on and don't wander around loose in strange neighborhoods.

In the unlikely event that the country implodes during your short stay, head for a border or hole up in Las Mercedes and wait for the next flight out.

We went on a day trip yesterday to Pricemart, Masaya Volcano, and Masaya parque central and it was quite nice.
The Tipitapa road widening is open and up to modern standards. The rotunda ticket traps have been replaced with proper signs and lane markings showing you what lane you are supposed to be in. It is amazing what MTI can do when it finally gets around to it.

As a tourist destination MGA has stuff, but it is spread out and subject to nicariquismos like being closed for 6 months for remodeling.

May I suggest puerto allende for lunch or dinner and a stroll, terraza peruana and Taiwan park, the National zoo on the way to Masaya, and the national museum in the old downtown.

I just did some touristy things in Managua for the first time. There is the old presidential house site which is now a notorious underground prison, the Malicon with th its restaurants and miniatures of old Managua and the cathedrals of Nicaragua (it’s empty during the day but would be a good spot to go for dinner and a walk) the old Cathedral with a nice museum next to it and a nice park with monuments across the plaza. Hire a car and go. I used Mr Ow Transportation. Speaks English. Good vehicles reasonable and safe. He is on Facebook.
