The Ancient footprints of Acahualinca in Managua

The tracks are fossil Late Holocene human footprints left behind in volcanic ash and mud, which solidified about 2, 200 years ago, shortly after the group of up to 10-15 people passed by.

The distance between the footprints indicates a walking gait. Fossilized footprints of several animals are also present, but the fact that they intersect the human footprints shows they were not traveling with the people.

The Ancient footprints of Acahualinca exist in Managua, Nicaragua near the southern shore of Lake Managua. The region was once called “El Cauce”.
