Salto Estanzuela

Northern Highlands

In Tisey’s lower elevations, just 5km from Estelí, is the inspiring Salto Estanzuela, a gushing 36m waterfall that careens over a bromeliad-studded cliff and breaks into a half-dozen foaming threads that feed a perfect swimming hole. Locals descend in hordes during Semana Santa, and the entire place suffers from left trash, but it's still a lovely site for a dip.
