Coffee & cacao plantations, traditional cattle ranches, lush forest and fresh air, welcome to Nicaragua’s central highlands.
The city of Matagalpa, 80 miles north of Managua, is used as a hub to explore Nicaragua’s north. Mountain treks, rafting, cycling, canopy and visits to indigenous communities are popular tours in Matagalapa and the highlands.
North-west of Matagalpa, near the border with Honduras, the city of Estelí still preserves its revolutionary spirit. Here you can find your inner peace with yoga classes in the morning, visit the farmer’s market before lunch and dance with the locals at night.
