A popular stop on the backpacker circuit through Nicaragua and THE place to be if you want to try volcano boarding. Also you'll find relatively easy access to some great surf from here.

Leon was not my favorite city in Nicaragua, but it is probably more traditional than some of the more popular cities. The market is vast and full of interesting meats, dried goods, and fruit and veg. The ex-pat community is strong in Leon, and there are some great restaurants and cafes as a result. You have to look a little harder to find the tipico places - comodores and street carts are not close to the main tourist areas. The volcano boarding is fun, and Leon is a great jumping off place for many other outdoor experiences as well.
