Our guides took us through the market and we ate many different types of local fruits, drinks, and hot street food. Carlos even brought a knife and chopping board set so we can cut fruit effectively. When I expressed a desire to try out the nacatamale, they went to get it for me To try. Despite me only being the only one on the tour, both the tour guides were patient and good with English.

We took Memo and Ye’s tour with our large extended family and it was a highlight of our trip. Our guides were very knowledgeable, the tour was thoughtfully organized, and we got to try so many things that none of us had had before (even having previously spent time in Nicaragua). The market in León is a showpiece of a Nicaraguan market (cleaner and wider aisles than in Granada; much larger than SJDS), and it was very helpful to have someone explain what the things we didn’t know were and how things are usually eaten or prepared. Everyone in our group had different favourites out of what we tried (fruits, drinks, savoury prepared dishes) and our guides answered all our questions (there were many as we were a group of 6). We also appreciated that our guides came with us to the grocery store after the tour to help us find packaged and labelled versions of some of what we’d seen in the market (pinolillo!) that we could take it with us through customs when we went home to Canada. Fabulous tour, really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Memo and Ye!

We heard of this food tour by one of the guides from the Volcano tour we did. We really enjoyed it and tasted all different kinds of typical Nicaraguan fruits, dishes and drinks. The guide, Memo, took us to a local market and it was really nice. He knows the people’s and the food very well and let us taste all kind of things. We did it on a Saturday because then there are more kinds of fruit and dishes available on the market. It was a very nice way to get to know the city of Leon and its food secrets.
