“DO NOT SHOP” at the Managua airport little souvenir stores. I bought a bracelet, decorated with supposedly turquoise stones. It turned out the “stones” were pieces of wood painted the color of turquoise. At the shop by gate 5, they sell coffee mugs supposedly “hand painted”, we found out, the “paint” was printed plastic that washed off. The shop owner, Doribel, refuses to return my money. Beware! These shops will rip you off. Outrageous prices for FAKE material!
AMAZING airport. I was very pleased; everything was very professional and this is by far the BEST airport I’ve been to, and trust me I’ve been to many; it left me thrilled and I suggest people go there. I love that place and I WILL go there as much as I possibly can. The place is the best and it totally deserves a 10000000000000000 or higher rate :-)
Great airport for the size of the country and the number of airlines that operate in Nicaragua, I do travel around the world and landed in several airports before and am pleased with two airports: Dubai and Managua. But what makes Managua one my favorite is the way they welcome you if you are using VIP services; it is amazing, not delay and they expedite the process so we can get meet with you family and friends, great reception after several trips all I can say: job well done, keep up the good work.
For a private pilot flying in, the hurdles are daunting. They have a different system in place in Nicaragua than most other countries. There are services available, and fuel available, as well as all ground handling services. The parking fee for small airplanes is $5 US per day, and it will be collected. Filing a flight plan can be done, but patience is a virtue and a necessity to navigate the security issues.
This mornings departure from Managua was the worst airport experience ever. I understand airport security and their procedures, but they searched me, my wife and drop off and carry-on luggages repeatedly over (4 times) every stop/ every check point for no necessary and inexcusable reason. Even the spirit ticket rep was unprofessional and rude. I’ve traveled all over the world, Caribbean and Europe by boat and plane but this is by far the worst experience/service ever and believe me, I would spread this terrible experience to everyone that’s going to this airport.

Great airport……….!!!! Under construction for remodeling, but its looking great, very modern, as a matter of fact, the best airport in Central America. The safest airport in Central America, you never get bad weather conditions, all flights arrive and depart on time. Congratulations

Awful airport. Slow incompetent, indifferent, lazy customs workers with outrageously invasive inspection requirements made worse (and frankly outright insulting) by the fact only 2 people were being inspected at a time and on average it took 10min per person to go through their entire luggage. On top of that no free airport wifi and no air conditioning. Absolutely awful despicable airport
