Matagalpa: The Paradise For The Hippie Traveler

We are lovers of coffee and we heard of this place in Nicaragua that offers coffee tours to the people, so it was decided on the spot that we will be heading towards Matagalpa, which is the name of the place. It is one of the few places in the country that also has weather that is spring-like throughout the 365 days in a year. The humidity levels are almost constant with between 75% and 85%, and the temperature ranges in the 30s that’s it. So, like us, if you love the sun and not the overcast and love the brightness and not the dullness, then do come here and spend at least a week.

The first and the most important thing to do in this place are to take the coffee yours. As stressed on the factor of weather earlier, this climate which is temperate in nature is perfect for growing the seeds of the beverage. You can take the help of the local community and visit some of the biggest farms in the country which produce beans that export to the world. Also, one can choose to stay in houses that are situated inside the coffee plantations too. Through the comprehensive tours, we learned everything about growing coffee along with the history and the processing of the same. And also to of course mention, the amazing taste of coffee that we tasted, it is nowhere to be found in the world, for sure.

Apart from the coffee tour, you can also walk around the city to visit its churches and other historical monuments that speak of the coffee culture and in general, the history of the country. It is an extremely informative experience and is a must visit once you are here in this country.
