Estelí football stadium
Nicaragua's best football team Real Estelí (also referred to as "El Tren del Norte") comes from Estelí. They are the current champions. Football games take place 3 p.m. on Sundays. The view of the surrounding mountain range is fantastic from the stadium. If you want to see local fans in action you should ask where the "Barra Brava" is.
Directions: Just ask the people where the "Estadio de fútbol" is. It is about 10 minutes walk from the cathedral.
Theme: Sports Watching
Muddy hike (beautiful cloud forest, though!)
In the Island of Ometepe there are two volcanoes: Concepción and Maderas. We climbed up the Volcan Maderas admiring the beautiful cloud forest and then down to Laguna de Maderas, where we swam. This trip took us about 6 hours and at the end we were very tired and muddy and could not take it any more... My calves were aching for 5 days after the climb.
Climbing up to Concepción takes more time (about 8h) and tears but it must be fantastic.
It is recommendable to go and climb up the volcanoes during the dry season when it is not so muddy.
Equipment: Rubber boots, long trousers, swimming suit, water and light snack + lots of humour for the muddy path.
Address: Ometepe island
