airbnb leon, nicaragua

Leon, Nicaragua, where poets have lived, where revolutionaries have fought - the land between sea and volcano. This is a beautiful city, seeped in history and culture, the perfect base for your stay in Nicaragua. We’ve done the legwork and found the top 10 most amazing Airbnbs for you to rent whilst in this amazing city, so all you need to do is book and enjoy this amazing town.

1. Casa Colonial & Corazon de Leon (from 11 USD)

This large, bright friendly house matches the colorful vibe of Leon; the rooms are large and each comes with a fan to cool you down on those warm Nicaraguan nights. This property is extremely close to all amenities, from the local grocers to a small disco to practice your moves at.

You’ll fall in love with the communal chill out zone, where you can rest in a hammock and take full advantage of the free WiFi in the main region of the house. Whilst food is cheap and cheerful in Nicaragua, you can also make full use of the kitchen and refrigerator for an extra 15 USD per night to cook up your own delicious food.

People who have previously stayed here have raved about the host’s (Maria) friendly attitude and how beautiful the house is; now is your time to book and see for yourself.
