Matagalpa — 7 nights

Pearl of the North

Nicaragua's second city, Matagalpa offers an authentic window into the country's cultural and natural heritage.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Cascada Santa Emilia, Apanas Tours Jinotega and La Cascada de la Luna. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at El Castillo del cacao and National Coffee Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at El Jalacate and Macizo de Penas Blancas. Get out of town with these interesting Matagalpa side-trips: Reserva Natural Miraflor (in Esteli) and Jinotega (Catedral San Juan & Iglesia San Rafael del Norte). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Catedral, experience rural life at Selva Negra Farm Tour, and see the interesting displays at Casa museo comandante Carlos fonseca.
