Not far away from the Cosigüina Volcano you can find some beautiful forests and an abundance of birds and other animals. This area, called the Cosigüina peninsula, is located in the northwest corner of Nicaragua and due to its location it is not frequently visited.


  • Hiking through the wetlands
  • Getting There

    To get there, you need to go 65 kilometers north from Chinandega. From there you must take a bus to El Viejo city, an there another bus to Potosí village. The wetlands are a few kilometers before Potosí.
