This private wildlife park offers a one-of-a-kind nature experience, thirty minutes outside of Managua
Hiking beside the capital
The Montibelli Private Natural Reserve is found in the municipality of Ticuantepe; forming part of one of Managua's most famous ecotourism circuits, it is a must-see destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Montibelli is a private nature reserve, found thirty minutes from the capital in a location that offers, through its location and terrain, spectacular scenery. It is a dry tropical forest, formed with land that encourages vigorous growth for products like coffee, lemons, pitayas, bananas and pineapples. Its wealth of animal species is equally impressive: opossums, bats, deer, monkeys, spiders, reptiles and, during the rainy season, an endless variety of butterflies are found here. The old hacienda has been set up as a shelter, and has three trails that can be used to explore the forest and observe the biodiversity of your surroundings.
