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 Catedral San Juan. 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: Iglesia San Rafael del Norte (in Jinotega) and Reserva Natural Miraflor (in Esteli). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Catedral, see the interesting displays at National Coffee Museum, and experience rural life at Selva Negra Farm Tour.
