    Get your game on!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not quite a sport but close enough. The boys in San Juan del Sur take their pool playing very seriously. So, if you wanna' get your *ss wooped, there a few halls which will gladly cater to you for about $2.00 an hour.

    Nice people - good players!

    Catch of the day...Mahi Mahi

    by epicult Updated Jul 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hook up with the folks at Casa Iguana... and for 45.00 (for 2 people) they guarantee you'll reel one in. The trip is approx. 2 hours and should be booked one day in advance.

    Please note that when you catch a fish, it becomes their property. They then have the nerve to charge you to cook/eat it and also serve it to all of their guests (charging them $7.50 a plate as well). I certainly enjoy the sharing part but I think they've taken good old American capitalism to the limit here. To their credit, we did recieve a large portion and two free beer.

    My recommendation... hire a local and catch em' the old fashioned way. It will be much cheaper, a better cultural experience and.... then when you're done, take it over to Bridgette's (a lovely woman and great cook) on the other side of the island and she'll cook it up for you for free... as long as you share :-)

    Equipment: Don't bring anything that you need to stay dry. You'll get absolutely soaked.

    Real Estelí...¡fútbol!

    by hanula Written Aug 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nicaragua's best football team Real Estelí (also referred to as "El Tren del Norte") comes from Estelí. They are the current champions. Football games take place 3 p.m. on Sundays. The view of the surrounding mountain range is fantastic from the stadium. If you want to see local fans in action you should ask where the "Barra Brava" is.

    Hiking up the volcanoes of Ometepe

    by hanula Written Jul 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the Island of Ometepe there are two volcanoes: Concepción and Maderas. We climbed up the Volcan Maderas admiring the beautiful cloud forest and then down to Laguna de Maderas, where we swam. This trip took us about 6 hours and at the end we were very tired and muddy and could not take it any more... My calves were aching for 5 days after the climb.

    Climbing up to Concepción takes more time (about 8h) and tears but it must be fantastic.

    It is recommendable to go and climb up the volcanoes during the dry season when it is not so muddy.

    Equipment: Rubber boots, long trousers, swimming suit, water and light snack + lots of humour for the muddy path.

    Muddy hike (beautiful cloud forest, though!)

    Baseball is King in Nicaragua

    by atufft Written Jan 20, 2013

    Numerous professional American ballplayers are from Nicaragua, and baseball is the favorite sport here, even over football (soccer). Talent is everywhere. On Solentiname Islands, I watched, took still and video of young players who played on an uneven field, with bat and gloves, and homemade hardball.
