Managua is the Capital city of Nicaragua. One distinct feature is that has a lot of concrete cobbled streets. You can not walk the city, you may walk within some neighbourhood, but usually distances are beyond walking distance and there is lack of side walks. The address is based on landmark references.


Managua International airport Agusto Cesar Sandino has MGA code. It is serve by TACA-Avianca, COPA, American Airlines, Delta, United Airline. You may expect to get connection in MIami, San Salvador or Panama city. Airport is about 12 kilometers from city center.

Local Transportation

The public transportation is overcrowded. There is plenty of taxi cabs but you have to bargain the fare before hand. There is not meters on the taxi cabs.


The proposed Venue is Universidad Centroamericana, it is a catholic university administered by the Jesuit order. It is one of the best universities on the country and it is the only university with a FOSS community GUL-UCA. Among the private universities UCA is the biggest, having several conference rooms. It has several labs, one of them has already installed Fedora. Starting 2012, UCA is a smoking free area.
