Selva Negra is a resort located on a coffee estate that also holds some beautiful virgin cloud forest, up in the mountains in Matagalpa. There are many different activities for the nature enthusiast.First of all, you can hike one (or more) of the 14 mountain hiking trails. The trails range in difficulty and length, but all lead through the dense cloud forest that is home to almost 200identified bird species. Besides these abundant birds you can also encounter small mammals (there is a good chance of spotting howler monkeys), reptiles and amphibians. If you take one of the tougher, steeperhikes you will be rewarded with some splendid views of the city of Matagalpa and the mountains surrounding it.
It is also possible to do horseback riding on the resort and on some of the hikingtrails as well.
Furthermore, you can see how coffee is grown and processed on the coffee plantation. There are also tours to a greenhouse where flowers grow.
In the Selva Negra Restaurant you canfind photos, paintings, tools, and more historical items that tell you the story of the German settlers who arrived in Nicaragua in the 19th century and became coffee growers.
