The center of this rural municipality is the small town of Tisma. There are some colonial buildings, the majority of them churches. The town is known for its hammock producers and a traditional sweet called "requesón". Its major attraction is the Tisma Lagoon, also known as 'Charco de Tisma', which still preserves its wildlife (herons, birds and fish). La Puntita beach is another interesting spot, located 2 kilometers away from town.

Getting There

There are two unpaved roads to get here. One is found in the city of Masaya (the entrance has signs on the highway that goes to Granada). The other one is the Masaya - Tipitapa highway. There are a few buses traveling here from the city of Masaya.
