NICARAGUA QUICKLINKS


Black Forest of Nicaragua - Selva negra

3 Days / 2 Nights

Jinotega, NicaraguaThis is one of our most interesting journeys for those who wish to discover Nicaragua 'off the beaten path'. The journey takes us to the little visited central region of Nicaragua, a cool, mountainous area which boasts a very interesting array of biodiversity.

En route we will make a stop in the city of Sebaco, where we will visit a coffee processing plant and learn all about the magic bean - how it grows, methods of processing and exportation.

At Selva Negra, we will start our program of activities, including a hike through an impressive mixed humid forest, which provides a lush habitat for many different types of plants, birds and unusual animals (even mountain crabs).

Cabin at Selva Negra LodgeWe spend the night at a mountain lodge which features a a cosy and comfortable dining room and individual wooden cabins that are especially attractive during the cool evenings.

The next day, we will use a 4x4 vehicle to travel through the green mountainous countryside of the Matagalpa - Jinotega region and spend a day with the farmers of this area. We will learn a lot, not only about coffee, reforestation and other agriculture products, but also about the social life on a typical Nicaraguan farm.

We will spend the night at the owner's house of Finca La Cumplida and make a complete tour of the Finca's facilities.

Light clothes, comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots, light rain jacket, flashlight, binoculars, mosquito repellant.
