Welcome to Jinotega


Few travelers make it here, but those who do enjoy visiting nearby Lago de Apanás and hiking into the misty mountains, where you can discover the local coffee industry and stroll through primary forest. Just make sure to get to Cerro La Cruz on a clear morning to glimpse Jinotega in all her jade glory.

And that City of Mists moniker is no joke – the average temperature is just 20°C (68°F) and the town can get 2600mm of rain annually – so bring a fleece for the cool evenings.
