Los Norteños are a group of families from the northern region of Nicaragua, who started reforesting the damaged forest to recover the cool climate of the area from which they came and began to understand the importance of their work when they found out new species of forest animals getting into the community and they also noticed how the water level have increased over the last years. Then they were organized with Agricultural Coopeatives Union to start exploiting their land, make tours and offer accommodation for tourists.
