Pearl of the North

Nicaragua's second city, Matagalpa offers an authentic window into the country's cultural and natural heritage. Surrounded by tall peaks, the city has become known for its agriculture, particularly coffee and cacao growing, with trips to plantations and tastings among the most popular things to do in Matagalpa. The attractive town center thins out on the biologically rich hillsides, with rural areas possessing a charming, authentic atmosphere and rustic architecture. The surrounding areas lend themselves well to eco-tourism, with impressive waterfalls, abandoned mine shafts, plantations, and ranches all waiting to be discovered. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Matagalpa and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
