A super cool place to grab a coffee, snack on homemade bread, and enjoy a lush outdoor garden complete with a playground for the kids. They also sell some of their vittles along with the handmade wooden puzzles that the owner David makes.

We looked for La Casita several times but didn't find it. On the third time of trying, we walked along the Pan American leaving Esteli to the south, and found it on the right hand side, after a bend in the road, about 600 metres...More
