Manfred Marotzke is wonderful. He arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport even though we let him know that we rented a car. Thank God, for Manfred for arranging a drive because when we arrived at the airport, we were told that all the cars were rented. Even though we had reservations and a confirmation number for a car, we were out of luck. When we arrived at the hotel, Manfred was there to greet us and provided fresh fruit juices for us. He gave us a tour of the grounds. Our first night he sat and chatted with us. He provided us his opinion which we asked for and were we were not disappointed of what we learned. He provided us with restaurants within walking distance. He also helped us with our transportation issues. He made several calls to try to find a rental car for us. However, because it was the holiday season, all the cars rented. Manfred made sure we would still be able to see the sites and he provided us with alternative ways to explore Nicaragua. We opted to take buses to Granada and Leon. The first day he drove us to the bus station about a 15 min walk. It was a wonderful experience. FYI, cost of a roundtrip ticket to Granada was US$2 and Leon US$2.50. Breakfast was a wonderful. The first morning we ate the typical Nicaraguan breakfast (rice, plantains and eggs), the second morning we had the best tamales I have eaten in a while. Reminded me of mi abuela’s. The last morning we were checking out at 5 AM, Manfred surprised us by having his cook prepare us a fresh fruit platter and toast and eggs to send us off. If you are in Managua, I highly recommend Hotel La Pyramide.
