    Cristina: Treat yourself to a manicure/pedicure in Estelí

    by hanula Written Aug 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cristina does an absolutely fantastic job with your feet and hands. I've had mine done in Finland too but it was never half as good. I highly recommend Christina's services. She can either attend you at her home (de telecable 1/2 cuadra al este, 10 varas al N. Esteli) or you can phone her on her mobile and ask her to come around your place tel: 08317605.

    What to pay: 110 córdobas (1 dollar = 15 córdobas)

    Many small boutiques: Elegant Ceramic Earthenware, San Juan del Oriente

    by hanula Written Jul 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    San Juan's fame in ceramics is an old one and the local clay has been used to make hand-shaped pottery for at least 1000 years.

    The ceramics sold in the village are real pieces of art. Not just any ceramics you can buy elsewhere in Nicaragua. Don't miss your chance to shop there because you ain't gonna find it elsewhere.

    What to buy: Ceramics

    What to pay: 5-40$

    Fundación casa de los Tres Mundos: Paintings from Granada

    by hanula Written Jul 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fundación Casa de los Tres Mundos is like a culture institution where they have photo exhibitions etc. It is worth a visit even just to see the lovely building. At the very end of the "labyrinth" you can find young artists' workshop. You can also buy their work, which is very professional. These guys have studied abroad as well.

    What to buy: Paintings

    What to pay: Depends very much on the painting.

    Hammocks in Masaya

    by epicult Updated Jul 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you see a hammock anywhere in Nicaragua, chances are, it originates from Masaya. Everytime I asked about someone where they purchased their beautiful hammock, the answer was always the same. Masaya. Masaya. Masaya!

    Although we didn't have a chance to visit, there are many "fábricas de hamacas" on the southwest edge of town accross from the old hospital.

    Many different styles, sizing and quality are available.

    What to pay: A nice one person hammock will set you back $10-25 USD (fits nicely in a small pack) and $50+ for the "Hamaca Grande" which you can fit a small family and dog on but will require considerable effort to lug around while you continue with your travels.

    Como a vos te gusta!

    by thelukey Written Aug 15, 2006

    What to buy: Nicaragua’s Flor de Caña rum is frequently hailed as the best liquor produced in Central America, but the cheaper (in price and in quality) Ron Plata has the more attention-grabbing advertising.
