Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a high end shopping experience in Managua. This large shopping complex has indoor and outdoor areas, a good range of stores including Siman and La Colonia and there are plenty of restaurants and fast food places to choose from. You could easily spend a few hours shopping here.

    This is a modern shopping centre in a central location in Managua. They have a range of different shops in a clean and air conditioned building. You can get here easily by bus or else there’s a large car park on site. There’s a Hotel Intercontinental right next door, which has an excellent Japanese restaurant.

    The "Huembe" as locals call it is a one stop shop for almost anything. The Mercado Roberto Huembe is not to be confused with the Mercado Oriental, which is said to have a lesser reputation. You can buy almost anything at the Huembe market. Fruits, vegetables, souvenirs, typical clothing, makeup, etc. You can get a haircut, keys made, vegetables, and a fresh chicken all in one place. The Huembe is generally safe. I'm unsure of the cleanliness and safety now due to COVID-19, but many locals shop here at the Huembe without any issues whatsoever.

    Outside of the Mercado Roberto Huembe they do money exchanges and sell animals as well. There is a drive through street outside of the Huembe where many sell dogs of all breeds. I can't vet for the health of the animal, but there are numerous dog breeds there from terriers, German shepherds, Huskies, poodles, to chihuahuas and so forth. Outside of the market on another street they exchange cordobas to dollars or dollars to cordobas. Some of the guys are known to have better rates than others. You just drive up and exchange the money. It is safe. We did this numerous times.

    This mall is quite small compared to the other malls further into the city of Managua. This mall is geared more towards locals than tourists. I don't think those from places like the U. S. and Canada would fine this mall quite interesting.
    We really enjoyed shopping here because it was small and the prices were quite cheap. My son got shoes for $5 (USD) and there is a store similar to the "Dollar Tree" in the U. S. that sells all sorts of products here in this mall as well. This place is cheap compared to Las Galerias Santo Domingo and MetroCentro Las Americas. Although Metrocentro is also considered affordable. There is a food court, movie theater, arcade, and convenience store (La Colonia) located in this mall. You could probably spend a couple hours window or actual shopping here and complete the entire mall within that time. Nothing wrong with this place, just don't expect anything too fancy.
