Granada
Chocoyero National Reserve

The Chocoyera Natural Reserve is a great place for hiking and nature watching. This reserve is located less than 30 kilometers away from Managua. The last 7 kilometers are mostly unpaved and cross pineapple, coffee, and banana plantations. This will slow us down but the road never boing and the views are magnificent. With old volcanic ridges surround the reserve changes there is nature all around.  The nature within the reserve has a lot to offer. There are several trails that can take you to different types of forests and vegetation. With an abundance of water Chocoyero is always green and wildlife flourishes. Two types of monkeys inhabit the park: howler and white-face monkeys.  Chocoyero is also a home to a number species of birds. The reserve is famous for its chocoyos, green parakeets that nest next to a waterfall and can be seen in large numbers in the morning when they leave, and in the late afternoon when they return.  The trails in Chocoyero have different lengths and difficulties. We will walk the shorter trail which leads to the waterfalls: Chocoyero and El Brujo. The trail to El Brujo is steep but not that long. The Chocoyero waterfall is about 30 minutes away from the entrance, and you don't need to climb in order to get there. This is where the chocoyos nest. The waterfalls are small but worth the hike. The water comes from rain further up in the mountains, and is collected to be used as drinking water in the communities nearby.
