Get around Taxis are common and cost NIO8 (USD0.35) per person anywhere in town. Fares are around NIO35 at night. Its best to agree a price before you get in the cab, Jinotegans love to change their mind. But on the whole they are a very friendly bunch. It is very safe to walk around Jinotega

or baseball. There are several sites around town if you just want to walk around. In general Jinotega has a small town feel with not a lot of things to do. The people are friendly, but more reserved than you will find in the bigger cities of Nicaragua. If you are lucky you will catch one of the many hipica's or parades, they love a parade here, The hipicas are a way for Jinotega, mostly men, to show off their horses. They love it.
