Chinandega





Chinandega was the land of the famous Indian chief “Agateyte” who ruled the Nahuas-Nicaraguas in this entire region. In the 60’s and 70’s Chinandega was the richest region of the country, due to the production of quality cotton.

Today, Chinandega is the main exit port of the Nicaraguan exports through “Puerto Corinto”. Now, on its fertile volcanic soil, sugar cane is cultivated to produce sugar and the famous rum “Flor de Caña”, winner of several awards around the globe.

A hike through the active San Cristobal volcano or Casitas is worth the experience due to the incredible landscapes from their summits. Natural reserves Estuary Padre Ramos and the Cosiguina Volcanic Crater Lake are part of the tourist attractions of Chinandega.
