Puerto Salvador Allende on Lake Managua (Xolatlán)


The Nicaraguan government has made admirable efforts to promote tourism in Managua.  The Salvador Allende Port is a good example.  In a newly renovated downtown area, you can board one of several boats for some quick trips out on the lake.

The "Isla del Amor" trip costs C$70 for adults and C$30 for children (10 years or under) for general seating.  If you want the preferential seating (outside, upper deck) it costs C$100 for adults and C$50 for children (10 years or under).  The quick trip lasts 50 minutes.

Schedule: Tuesday to Sunday 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. y 5:00 p.m.

There is a night trip that I am dying to take.  It also runs Tuesday to Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Prices are C$100 for adults and C$50 for children (10 years or under).  Note: The boat only leaves with a minimum of 18 passengers.
