In this department major municipalities are located in tourism, as San Jorge, San Juan del Sur or Ometepe Island. However, the city of Rivas also offers its charms to visitors. Known as “the city of the mango trees” are seen along the road extensive lines of these trees from which the city received the adjective. In the city you can visit the sanctuary of “Rescue Jesus” image that greets visitors at the roundabout Rivas. This sanctuary is located in the Popoyuapa neighborhood in the east of the city, and is famous for the presence of Jesus the rescue image that the Catholic faithful attributed many miracles and celebrate “Good Friday” before the “Easter” and why hundreds of families come to the shrine each year to pay promise, moving on carts pulled by oxen or horses from other municipalities and departments such as Granada, Carazo, Masaya and people who come from other countries with the same religious fervor. Also in the city center it is the central park “Evaristo Carazo”, with recreational areas for children and adults, selling handicrafts and comidería in general. Across from the park San Pedro parish, which celebrates its festivities on June 29 and is second in importance after Popoyuapa sanctuary stands.
