Léon is Nicaragua‘s charming student town in the north of the country. Here you will find a vibrant live music scene,  stumble over historical sites and colonial churches and you discover that the locals will let you be. Unlike that other beautiful colonial city of Granada, nobody here wants to sell you something. In Leon, you stroll through the streets in which famous poet Rubén Darío grew up and wrote poetry about, play a game of basketball with a group of teenagers and observe elderly couples who take in life on a daily basis. But Leon is also a mecca for adrenaline junkies. It is the only place in the world where you can go boarding of a volcano!
