Central America, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, in between Costa Rica and Honduras. Nicaragua is the biggest territorial country in Central America, with coastlines to the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Two important mountain ranges go across the country: the Central American Andes (from northwest to southeast) and a volcanic trend (on the western coast). The Managua and Nicaraguan lakes lie in between these mountain ranges. Its tropical climate provides much rain to the orient and a drier condition to the occident (where population is higher).
Jinotega, one of the biggest regions in the country, is located within an area called ‘The Coffee Triangle', at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. With valleys and high mountains, Jinotega is about 140 kilometers north from the capital city. The name ‘Jinotega’ comes from the word ‘náhualt’ meaning ‘town of jiñocuabos’. However, because of its usually foggy and template weather, Jinotega is commonly known as ‘The City of the Clouds’.
