Colonial Irrigation System



We went on a hike up the Mombacho Volcano today passing banana and cacao plantations. These plantations have been here since colonial times. The pictures show the structure of the colonial irrigation system that is still in use today. From the viewing platform reached after passing the irrigation system, you have a great view of the Jicaro Island Ecolodge on the Isletas in Lake Nicaragua.
