Esteli

Sitting up in the north central highlands, Esteli enjoys a fairly mild climate throughout the year. A university town with a history of socialist support, Esteli has a creative air, with art galleries and artisan workshops throughout the main urban area. The surrounding fields have long been used for tobacco growing, with cigar manufacturing still one of the major sources of income in town. The surrounding landscape can be explored on a range of excursions around its forested mountains, waterfalls, and cloud forests, with the temperate climate making the journeying particularly refreshing.
