Ticket to Managua

Hey I am Owen. Two months ago I got a ticket to Managua from San Jose. First, I wanted to get a ticket with a stopover so I could visit another city but I just bought a direct ticket to Managua for convenience An awkward thing happened on the day of my flight. just a few hours before my flight to Managua I realized I never printed my ticket. I could not print at home cause I don't have a printer. I also do not have a smartphone so electronic ticket was not an option. I eventually had to ask my neighbour whom I have never spoken to if I could use their printer to print my ticket! Apart from this incident, my time at Managua went really well. Managua had a beautiful downtown area with many parks and historical sites. I was blown away by the historical significance of Managua. I also did volcano boarding! I decided to stay in the outskirts of the city for an authentic Managua experience rather than staying downtown.

Ticket for two fo Managua

Hello, my name is Lizzy. I traveled to Managua with my sister during my spring break last year. We went to see many cities in Central America and the first city we got a ticket for was Managua. We bought our ticket beforehand, about 5 months in advance. The ticket was relatively cheap and we got a good deal. We got a direct flight ticket and our flight was very comfortable. When we got there, we relaxed by the lake and also did kayaking for birdwatching. The view was SO serene; I just loved being by the water. We also visited the National Arboretum Juan Bautista Salas, a natural reserve. The sanctuary was so pretty, with numerous trees and bushes.
