Although most of the land in this municipality are plains, with abundant reeds and other crops, there are a few rarely visited attractions: the slopes of the volcanic complex of Los Maribios (North) and the beaches of the Pacific Ocean (Southeast). Its center is the small city of Chichigalpa, which celebrates its religious festivities in honor of the 'Virgen de la Candelaria' each February 3rd. Also, there are three interesting sites: the Ingenio San Antonio, where the sugar cane is industrially processed, the National Liquor Company, where the famous Ron Flor the Caña is produced and the Tour Flor de Caña.
