Tisey Nature Reserve and El Jalacate
Discover the natural beauty of Esteli as you explore the surroundings with a local guide. Your experience starts at the Estanzuela Waterfall. After a short walk, you'll visit a traditional farm that hosts the highest viewpoint of the reserve, on a clear day the best place to enjoy panoramic views from Lake Managua to the volcanoes of the Pacific. After lunch a moderately challenging hike down to the valley brings you to a subsistence farm surrounded by dense forest and farmland, Finca El Jalacate. The extraordinary resident artist guides you through an impressive collection of rock sculptures, carved out of a rocky forested hill. Don Alberto works with very basic tools and has a vivid imagination, depicting a mix of historic figures and -happenings, of course with a certain degree of artistic freedom.
