Puerto Cabezas

Central America is the central geographic region of the Americas. It is variably defined either as being a region of the Americas in its own right or as the southern portion of North America. Physiographically, Central America is a tropical isthmus that connects North and South America. It includes 7 countries and many small offshore islands. Overall, the land is fertile and rugged, and dominated through its heart by a string of volcanic mountain ranges with a few active volcanos.
Puerto Cabezas is a municipality in the North Atlantic Coast department of Nicaragua. The municipality and the entire region are indigenous lands. The city of Bilwi is part of the Community of Karata, including land north of Bilwi which borders the Community of ten communities. The owners are the various community groups who have demarcated their particular land areas. The culture, like the rest of Nicaragua's Caribbean coast, has a very prominent Caribbean influence. The population is mainly Spanish speaking, but there are also very large groups of Creole and Miskito. Nicaragua is a democratic republic in Central America.

Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Puerto Cabezas enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Central America, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers’ world over.
