Less than 20 minutes from Casa Castillo is the little town of Catarina.
Popular among the Nicas as Niagara Falls is to Canadians.
It is an urban centre that is lined with local nurseries and artisans.
Their nurseries are so rich in flora that they provide most of
Nicaragua with their flower needs.
Handcrafted furniture and other wood products are located
throughout the area and in the town centre.
This town provides another great lookout to view Lake Apoyo and a
great hilltop park and trail area with great restaurants and shops. in
the months of November to January you may catch some colourful
and cultural festivities.
