Jinotega Things to Do

  • Hike to Pena de La Cruz

    by springwater47 Written Jul 23, 2012

    Moderate hike to a cross located on top of a mountain overlooking the city. Certain portions of the trail are very rocky and somewhat steep. A guide is recommended but not necessary. Windy at the top and clouds will most often obscure the view of the city, but when it clears, you get a clear view.

    Just stumbled across this great place that is being built in the mountains surrounding jinotega, 2 aussies and an American chick are building a a cloud forest reserve. They are in the final stages of building a backpackers lodge, which can sleep 12 and has the most amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
    we went on a horse trek one day, they on site stables and 3 horses, they r great they teach you how to saddle up the horses first then give you riding lessons to make sure you are competent and then you trek independently with a local guide who speaks english. The surrounding countryside is stunning, we stopped in a local pueblo for lunch n beer, it was awesome riding solo, what a buzz.
    They are also developing organic permaculture based gardens, and their next project to build is a spa sauna, dip pool hot tub area. the land covers 12 manzanas and has great walks, and a bat cave. wow.
    Antony is a professional photographer so photographic lessons are available,
    suzanne teaches english and spanish

    one of the amazing views from La Biosfera part of the organic permaculture based gardens hummingbirds are common there The loft at falling water, you can stay here the markets at Jinotega

Jinotega Restaurants

  • Eskimo: Ice Cream!!!

    by springwater47 Written Jul 23, 2012

    Similar to Baskins Robbins in the United States. Not as clean but definitely better than other places in Nicaragua. Serves delicious ice cream and sundae. The restaurant serves classic ice cream flavors but also some Nicaraguan ones as well like dragon fruit. Open all days 10am to 8 pm.
