Montibelli Wildlife Reserve
Beautiful Views, Tree Frogs, Caterpillars, Worms, and MoreSometimes you just have to get out of the city. Good thing there are lots of interesting things to do and see -- many of them nature-related! -- just a short drive from Managua. One of them is the Montibelli Wildlife Reserve, which is off of the Carretera a Masaya, on the Ticuantepe - La Concha road. You'll probably need a four-wheel drive to get there, but it's worth it. For an inexpensive guided tour, you'll be taken on a short hike (you can also do a longer hike on your own) and the guide will point out plants and animals you probably would never have noticed on your own. And yes, you'll even get to touch a tree frog.
