Adventure Awaits at Cutirre Farm
Nicaragua is known as one of the coffee capitals of the world. Breathtaking coffee plantations lie scattered amongst the spectacular Nicaraguan landscapes. One of the most beautiful working coffee plantations is located just outside Granada. The Cuttire Farm is a privately owned coffee farm that has many attractions and activities for visitors to enjoy. Over and above the attractions here, guests will lose themselves in the splendor of the views and natural wonders that surround the farm.
Cuttire Farm is situated on the magnificent hills of the Mombacho Volcano, which affords the farm the honor of having the most beautiful views of the Volcan Conception and the Isla de Zapatera. Hiking through the dense forests on the volcano is available and one of the activities that nature lovers and bird watchers will enjoy. There are a few strenuous parts along the way, but once visitors have seen the splendor of the forests or caught a glimpse of the estimated forty three different species of birds in the area, it makes the hiking expedition worthwhile.
Of course, visitors are taken on tours of the coffee plantation, where they can view the equipment used and are given educational presentations in regard to the coffee industry. If hiking for wildlife or walking through the plantations seems to be too much hard work, visitors are also able to tour the farm grounds on horseback. The farm is also home to a butterfly farm which has a small insect museum with wonderful exhibits and fascinating butterfly species to look at.
But it is the canopy tours that attract most visitors to Cutirre Farm. Professional guides will take visitors high up into the canopies of the massive shade trees that are found on the farm. The canopy tour consists of seventeen platforms and a hanging bridge. Horizontal zip lines allow visitors to safely cross from one tree to another, literally giving them a bird’s eye view of the forest below.
The Cuttire Farm, with its majestic views and landscapes, can easily be described as one of the most picturesque destinations in Nicaragua. With adventure and discovery waiting around every corner, visitors will find the Cuttire Farm to be an unforgettable experience, an opportunity to view nature in Nicaragua in different ways, and a chance to explore an age old industry that has become part of the culture and tradition in Nicaragua.
