Tranquilo Traveler: 48 Hours in Estelí, Nicaragua

(originally published 2 Dec 2012)

In July, 2012, I returned for a quick visit to Estelí, Nicaragua (not far from the village where I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer a long time ago…), to report on ‘la ruta de los puros,’ or ‘cigar tourism.’ My article on Estelí’s newest budget accommodations, Hotel Puro Estelí, appears in the current issue of Cigar Press magazine. Here are a few scenes from that trip. More stories from Nicaragua, Belize, and the Tranquilo Traveler:

Don’t miss Nicholas Melillo’s Travel Channel debut on 23 January, 2013, on the Latin America episode of a new show called “Street Eats.” My next 12 seconds of fame will be on 19 December, 2012, in the ceviche scene of the Travel Channel show, “Fast Foods Gone Global.”
