A destination with a story, a story of vision made up of extraordinary love for nature and for Nicaragua. In 2011, when the land that would built up Nekupe was being acquired, 80% of its forest was in complete deforestation. The land was erosion, species of high market value had been extracted, and the loss of the wild fauna was enormous.
Don Alfredo y Dona Theresita Pellas, began reforesting and planting thousands of precious wood trees yearly. They built several reservoirs to attract and sustain more diverse fauna and developed distinctive recreational facilities, integrating them into ecological advancements. Furthermore they have rescued and brought in several indigenous animal species that are now protected within the reserve. To date, with constant guidance and active care through a team of local experts and ecologists, the project has grown to be a home to a variation of over 72,000 species of trees.
