La Concepción

Two neighboring urban centers and rural surroundings are part of this municipality of cool weather, several hills and small valleys, which is also known as 'La Concha'. La Concepción and the nearby town of San Juan de La Concepción are the urban centers. The major religious festivities are held from February 8th to 9th, in honor of the 'Virgen de Monserrat'. An interesting site, which is shared with other municipalities, is the El Ventarron Hill, from where visitors have beautiful panoramic views of the Masaya Volcano National Park.


Getting There

La Concha is crossed by the highway that connects Ticuantepe (Managua) with San Marcos (Carazo). Therefore, you can get here either way. You can take the highway that starts in Ticuantepe, in the 'Carretera a Masaya', located in the outskirts of Managua, or the highway that comes fom the city of San Marcos.

There are frequent buses traveling to San Marcos, Ticuantepe and Managua in both towns.
