Esteli: A Must Visit In Nicaragua

Posted on 27 February 2019 by admin (0)

Villa de San Antonio de, also recognized as Esteli is a Nicaraguan city and also a municipality with its own collection of cultural and natural attractions. Expanding over an area of 795.7 square kilometers, Esteli is best known for its vast tobacco plantations and supreme quality cigars, making it one of the most significant cigars manufacturing countries in the world. This delightful and beautiful city was recommended to my friend Luke from Florida.  He has had the opportunity to travel many places & said this place is amazing.  He is an avid health conscious person and talks about how CBD products are getting a big boost here.   This area belongs to the Esteli Department and is the second largest city in the northern half of Nicaragua. As it is located almost 844 m above sea level, the city experiences a pleasant climate and is surrounded by pine, oak, walnut forests, mountains, and preserved natural reserves. Even though the place does not lure the best number of tourists, it comprises of some delightful elements like vast plantations, archeological centers, cultural centers, business centers, hotels on budgets, bars and recreational clubs etc along with warm and friendly natives. I would say Esteli is suitable as we were seeking for a place with a pleasant climate, good ambiance, and also some of the natural reserves are open to tourists. Some places to visit/activities we saw in the city were:

  • Tisey Estanzuela Natural Reserve
  • Reserva Natural Miraflor
  • Esteli Waterfall
  • Museo de Historia y Arqueologia Alejandro Davila Bolanos
  • Parque Central
  • Funarte
  • Drew Estate
  • Salto de Estanzuela
  • Artesanias La Esquina
  • El Jalacate
  • Esteli Cigarros factory
  • Leonel Rugama Cultural Center
  • Highland tours

Summing up, Esteli has bits of almost everything that is necessary for a casual, comfortable and simple getaway including waterfalls, cloud forests, historical sites, nightclubs, museums, etc. For anyone looking forward to shopping, Esteli has some fine marble handicrafts and some nearby places also host clay handicraft workshops.

I feel that Esteli has an underrated charm and beauty to it and also turns out to be a guaranteed place to cleanse your minds and create some memories.
