Parque Reyes

Reviewed By Gene J - Silver Spring, Maryland

We walked up here after lunch at Mini Hotel and ice cream at Sorbeteria Nyah. Front and center is large statue of 6 young men holding products and supporting a flame. Huge trees planted in pairs frame the corners, a nice bandstand in the center, and a wall of bright murals along the north. With kids playing, adults occupying brightly painted benches, and a troupe of uniformed students having a meeting, this is a vibrant community park.

Bluefields Cultural Museum

Reviewed By Gene J - Silver Spring, Maryland

Just 240 meters up the street from our Hotel Jackani, we passed by here going into town. Finally, today it was open. The entry personnel called a young lady who retrieved the key to open the upstairs collection.
Speaking English, she pointed out the old wall map where the British drew the straight border line down through Nicaragua delineating the Moskito Territory. We spotted the wooden model for the Main Plaza's statue to the 6 indigenous peoples and their products. Examining several saddle mill(quern) stones, I spotted the pictures of Kurka Hill; the three 25' pre-Mayan stone pyramids discovered in 2003 just 40 miles north. After passing a collection of old typewriters and radios, we came to a score of pictures of the devastation of the1988 Hurricane, where we could spot many of the changes.
For this small community, this is an important museum and is deserves a visit.

La Iglesia Morava

Reviewed By Gene J - Silver Spring, Maryland

Each day, we walked 450 meters up from our Hotel Jackani. This morning, we were able to gain access as the custodian was pulling the bell tower ropes signaling the approaching 9:30AM service. The bright white interior had 2 rows of thin columns providing 3 bays to the nave with the wide center arched to the altar.
Outside, a bay front memorial marks the German missionary heritage that built the original church in wood. It was destroyed in 1988 Hurricane Joan, and rebuilt in concrete in1992.
Their properties extend to the large college across the street, several clapboard administration houses nearby and a clinic up the street.

Iglesia Morava

Reviewed By Shawn M - Missoula, Montana

The Moravian Church is very significant in the history of this part of Nicaragua. It only takes a few minutes to tour. If you are interested in the history and the religion of the coastal communities, it is worth visiting.
It is a small, active church with a lot of history. The people are very friendly and welcoming. As churches go it is nice, clean and well maintained but it's primary purpose is to serve it's community, not serve as a tourist attraction. Please be respectful of services and church activities.

In Waiku we offers classes in painting, drawing and traditional dances like May pole and punta garífuna. Waiku is a beautiful place to take a coffee, read a book and learn about local art.
