Talabarteria Santana Los Chavarria - Shopping Matagalpa - Nicaragua

On a nondescript street on the north side of town is the humble workshop of a local family that has been hand-crafting saddles for generations. These intricately decorated leather pieces can take up to three days to make. At around75 USDa pop, these babies aren’t cheap, but most backpackers don’t plan on lugging a saddle around Central America anyway. By no means a souvenir shop, the best reason to stop by is to see the authentic process of making saddles for authentic cowboys.

Located three blocks north of Parque Morazan.
