A Sandinista stronghold, a university town, a market center for the thousands of farmers that populate its surrounding hills, Estelí has a multifaceted soul. On weekdays you can wake up with sunrise yoga before Spanish class, and on Saturday you can mingle with farmers at the massive produce market, then see them again at midnight, dancing like mad in a ranchero bar.
Estelí's active center has a museum, cultural and business centers. Besides its many hotels and restaurants, Esteli also has bars and clubs with a good ambiance. it's also worth mentioning the world-class cigars. The city is famous for the tobacco production that takes place in the high quality cigar factories and plantations, located in the urban area.
