Matagalpa Things to See and Do

follow us

With stunning mountain ranges beckoning in all directions, travelers will likely want to spend more time outside of the city than in it. Still, Matagalpa is a great base for many excursions, and is also home to several attractions of its own, including parks, a couple of small museums, an array of churches and two cemeteries.
