Condega

One of the three main tobacco growing areas of Nicaragua. Condega, located north of Estelí, is a quiet town near the Cantagallo Mountains. Tobacco from Condega tends to be more medium bodied than the tobacco grown in Estelí and stronger than the tobacco grown in Jalapa. The land is known for its orchids and it’s not uncommon to see small cacti growing near the region’s tobacco fields.
