It would be hard to dream up a sweeter setting than what you’ll find in this tiny mountain pueblo 20km north of Ocotal, and just a 30-minute drive from Honduras. Think narrow, cobbled streets, surrounded by the pine-studded, coffee-shaded Segovia Mountains, carved by a rushing, cascading river.
The majestic mountains around Dipilto are known for producing some of the best coffee in Nicaragua. Staff in the alcaldía can help organize hikes through some of the town's stunning shade-grown plantations with especially trained local guides. It's also possible to arrange guided treks to quetzal nesting grounds in the cloud forest on 1867m El Volcán.
