Búho Books is a second hand bookstore in the frontroom of Hostal Calle de los Poetas. We have had the dream of opening a bookstore in León for a long time, as bookstores is practically non-existent in León. And since León is, and has been, the home of so many poets and writers, a good bookstore is a must for this city.
We offer a good selection of books in english, spanish, dutch, german, french, norwegian and more. The selection of books is a bit random, since they are second hand, but we have everything from old classics and novels to history, travel books and children books. We also have a selection of national authors, such as Gioconda Belli, Sergio Ramirez, Ruben Dario and Rosario Aguilar, just to mention a few. We also have a good selection of new books about Nicaragua in english and spanish.
We also offer some unique souvenirs from Diseño Diacachimba, Nicaragua Infinita and Mujeres Ambientalistas.
You can read more about the bookstore on the blogg.
New opening hours: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am – 5pm. Saturday 09am – 2pm. We are closed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays.
Address: Hostal Calle de los Poetas, from Museo Ruben Dario, one and a half block west, infront of Afrodita pharmacy.
