We almost didn't go to Esteli, and we were so happy we did. We booked a homestay in Miraflor through Treehuggers in town. By far one of the most friendly and knowledgable tour companies. They clearly care a lot about the area, and most of the staff were born and raised in Miraflor. We left really early on the bus... More

Beautiful. We loved our guide. We opted for a Spanish-speaking guide in order to practice our Spanish and it went great. The bus ride is bumpy and dusty, but worth an excursion out of the city.

We were told that Miraflor was a must see and it did absolutely not disappoint. We booked our trip via Treehuggers in Estelí. After a bumpy bus (with no seatings) ride of approximately 1:45h, we arrived at La Pita for a nice breakfast with local coffee. Our guide, Nelson, led us through the beautiful landscapes of Miraflor's microclimates with spectacular... More

Do try to go to Miraflor! We loved it. Plenty of opportunities for a homestay with a rural campesino family. We booked through Treehuggers. Very easy. You go up on a local bus, which is also all part of the experience.

The cloudforest is definitely beautiful but it's not the type of beautiful you travel all the way around the world to see. There's some cool fauna and wildlife but it's actually still farmland where people live and thus it's not too amazing to see. Worth a trip if you find yourself in esteli with nothing to do.

Having spent several weeks in the Esteli area , I can honestly say this was the highlight attraction. Many lovely family size , low intensity farm ( think cabbage and small coffee acerages with very little equipment used) operations mix with the natural flora and fauna. Throw in a few waterfalls , mom and pop restaurants, eco friendly hotels, lightly... More

We stayed with a family in their coffee plantations for 3 nights. It was such an eye opening trip. We had a long travel day the day we arrived. We were very cold and tired but the excellent food with a small carbon footprint was delicious. We had 3 meals a day and none of them disappointed. When you are... More

We decided to spend two nights with a family at a more distant farm booked through Tree Huggers. The bus broke down, we didn't have the finca we requested and thus had no language, the host's food made us very ill with all the salt, and it was just a farm. Too rough for my tastes.
