If you like visiting ruins this one is well kept in a tranquil setting. The entrance fee is about a dollar per person. There is a guide who speaks spanish and english. Be aware that in the summer it is very hot and humid here. For a great photo walk up to the vista point which overlooks the volcano.

The ruins of Leon Viejo are Nicaragua's only UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Although the guide was awesome and the ruins were alright, the effort to get there wasn't all that. Overall, the site is worth a visit, but it might be closer to the "underwhelming" side than to the "amazing" side. Nonetheless a nice piece of history.
