Top 13 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Managua, Nicaragua - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

Surprisingly, the city of Managua, Nicaragua, is not familiar to most people. Why is this surprising? Well, because Managua is the capital city of the largest country in Central America - so you’d think it would be better recognized. Especially since it has many things to do! Not only can you admire the beauty of nature here, at places such as the Tiscapa Lagoon and the Chocoyero-El Brujo Natural Reserves, you can enjoy chilling on Montelimar Beach or visiting the numerous monuments from the times of the occupation of the Spanish Empire.

Another advantage of this stunning country is that it doesn’t have as high of a crime rate as other nearby countries. Traveling to Nicaragua should definitely be added to your bucket list! Once you decide to go, check out these recommended Airbnb vacation rentals in Managua, Nicaragua.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 14, 2024.

It’s furnished with a double bed, desk, ceiling fan and a TV. You’ll also get access to a private bathroom and all the common spaces, such as the kitchen and living room.

6. Two private rooms in the center of Managua (from USD 25)

Want to stay in the city center without spending too much money on accommodation? Here comes this house to the rescue! This is one of the best Airbnbs in Nicaragua and it consists of two bedrooms with three beds in total and one spacious bathroom to share. Hot water is installed, although you may not want to use it, as there is no AC in the house. However, don’t worry about the lack of cool air, as the rooms have fans. Also, who could complain about anything when you’re getting free cookies and coffee in the morning?

7. Spacious room, relaxing terrace, best location

I challenge you to find cheaper accommodation in Managua than this spacious room! It’s furnished with two beds, desks, a luggage rack, closets and a small fridge. The bathroom is shared with one of the family members but, other than that, guests will have lots of privacy. In the evenings it’s recommended to chill on the terrace under the two mango trees. Garden lamps create a magical atmosphere and will make you not want to leave this place! And so will the hosts’ dog and two parakeets!

8. Contemporary townhouse - Prime area with pool and car

This is a beautiful mansion to rent in the prime residential area of Managua. Since it’s located near embassies, the neighborhood is really safe. It is five minutes away to the nearest shopping mall, restaurants, and a hospital. The place can host up to five people. Given the fact that there are four beds and three and a half bathrooms, everyone will have lots of space.

Free WiFi is available and so is parking. However, you can request a personal driver, so you don’t need to worry about commuting. This is definitely recommended! One look at the pictures of the modern design and swimming pool and there’s no need for any more discussion.

9. Modern living in Managua

If you don’t trust our word that Managua is a safe place to stay, you can stay in this apartment – guarded 24/7 by security. It’s in a fenced area, with access to a huge pool. Safety isn’t the only advantage of this flat. Its design makes a stay memorable. It’s modernly furnished, the kitchen is fully equipped and there are two bathrooms. It’s the perfect “dream apartment” material!

Another reason for its attractiveness is its location, just five minutes away from the shopping mall and restaurants, 30 minutes to the airport, 45 minutes to Granada and just at the foothills of Managua. Don’t hesitate – just book!

10. Nice and peaceful apartment

Having trouble deciding whether you want privacy or a host in the house to help you when needed? Worry no more! Here, you’ll be offered a private room, separated from the main house. However, the help of the host is here, whenever you need! The room is furnished with a single bed, sofa and a fan. There is also free WiFi in the space. Guests will also have a bathroom to themselves.

The biggest advantage of this place is its location - just 20 minutes to the historic center of Managua, five minutes walk from nightclubs (for the ones looking to party), a bakery and 24/7 store. A supermarket and pharmacies are also just a stone’s throw away. Convenience is the key, here!

11. Poolside room in colonial mansion (from USD 35)

The best way to experience a new culture is to stay with the locals! Feel free to book a room in this spectacular, colonial mansion, if you’re traveling in a group of three people. It’s located on the hillside of Managua, where it’s cooler than in the city center. You’ll be offered a private bathroom, one double and one single bed, a fan and access to an outdoor swimming pool.

The Masaya Volcano is just 20 minutes away and the host is willing to help you arrange a tour – not just to the volcano but also to other parts of the city. All for a very reasonable price!

13. Cozy room in a big house in the center of Managua

Even though this apartment is located near the center of the nightlife of Managua, you can’t hear any noise from the street. It’s designed in boho style, with instruments hanging on the wall, lots of plants and paintings. The host’s parents live in the flat. They don’t speak English, but it may be a great opportunity to practice your Spanish!

The best part of this accommodation is its terrace and garden, where you can chill on a hammock. You may just be renting a room, but you’ll be given access to the fully equipped kitchen and living room, as well. Restaurants, shopping malls, and public transportation are all nearby. What more could you want?
