Chocoyero Nature Reserve

It is a great place for getting into real contact with nature in a dry tropical forest. This Nature Reserve is located 30 kilometers (18 miles) southwest of the capital city of Managua and it is home to a wide biodiversity of flora and fauna within its 185 hectares (455 acres).

There are about 113 bird species including hummingbirds, toucans, wrens, and the most famous inhabitant the “Chocoyo Coludo” or “Green Parakeet”. These marvelous birds live and nest on a rocky wall that forms a beautiful waterfall all year round, providing to the nearby communities an important source of clean water. This rich wildlife also includes 29 species of mammals and 21 species of reptiles and amphibians.

Chocoyero-El Brujo Nature Reserve’s night life is very active with ocelots, deer, agoutis, opossums, and other animals, thus camping is a great idea for night life observation. The vegetation is lush and beautiful and if you pay careful attention on the tree tops during the day you will be able to see howler monkeys and even the white-faced monkeys.

El Chocoyero Reserve is surrounded by different agricultural communities cultivating different fruit crops but mainly juicy pineapples and pitahayas ( dragon fruit ).
