3 unique viewpoints in Nicaragua

Due to its great natural, cultural, historical and tourist wealth, Nicaragua has much to offer visitors, who can tour the beautiful Central American country to live unique and unforgettable experiences.

We invite you to this tour where two differentiating elements converge: unparalleled panoramic views and intersections.

Peña de la Cruz, Jinotega

More than 100 kilometers from the capital Managua, between fog and the pleasant climate that surrounds the city of Jinotega, is the Peña de la Cruz hill, a beautiful natural viewpoint which is very popular with those who wish to test their physical resistance, who, in addition, long to have incredible postcards in the peaks of Nicaragua.

To get to this beautiful viewpoint it is necessary to climb 936 steps that begin at the foot of the hill with a journey of at least 45 minutes, between trails and the magical contact of nature.

At the end of this walk the reward will be fascinating, since, at the top of this imposing place that stands more than 1,300 meters above sea level, you will have a panoramic view of Lake Apanás, the Dantalí – El Diablo Natural Reserve, as well as , a general and spectacular view of the city of mists.

Cerro Apante, Matagalpa

On Cerro Apante, a mountain range located southwest of Matagalpa, we also find one of these figures, which, due to its historical context and full of faith, makes it an attraction for visitors.

Throughout the trail to the top one can see three or four natural viewpoints, but the icing on the cake is at the end. A few steps uphill is the Peace Cross, its viewpoint towards Matagalpa and the mountains of other municipalities is gratifying. With the cold wind in your face, this is the ideal time to rest”, describes Edwin Madrigal in his article: 10 reasons to visit Cerro Apante, Matagalpa.

The name of this hill comes from the Matagalpa language and means “On the stones.” This nature reserve in Nicaragua at more than 1,400 meters above sea level remains almost virgin and little visited.

Peña del Tigre, León

Between the resorts of Las Peñitas and Poneloya, 20 kilometers southwest of that department, is the Peña del Tigre viewpoint, a place that makes everyone who cools off from the hot climate of the area enjoy.

Here you can see one of the most beautiful and unforgettable experiences to say goodbye to the day: the sunset, brown, reddish, orange and yellow tones combine with the sea breeze.

On rocky rock formations, and with the impact of the waves that cause delicious splashes of water, there is a cross, locals tell you various stories – about its origin – that you should discover by visiting this site.

Do you dare to visit these three places? Or why not the viewpoints of Catarina, Cerro Mogotón, Diriá or Altos de Ocotal? Nicaragua is full of natural viewpoints to appreciate the beauty with which it was designed.
