The major attraction of this rural municipality is the Chiltepe Peninsula Natural Reserve, situated on the shoreline of Lake Managua. The Xiloa Lagoon, which has a tourist center, is located here, as well as the little known (and barely accessible) Apoyeque Lagoon. There are other attractions like a small forest and some caves on the southern side of town. In addition to Mateare, the capitol, other important centers are Los Brasiles and San Andrés de la Palanca.

Getting There

Mateare can be reached by the 'Carretera Nueva a León'. Its town is located on the kilometer 25, and a few kilometers after that you will arrive at Los Brasiles. There are several unpaved roads that will take you to other communities. Also, there are frequent buses leaving at the Israel Lewites Market.
