There are over 30 different types of hummingbirds in Nicaragua, or as they are called in Spanish, colibris. Hummingbirds are most attracted to red flowers and we make a concerted effort to fill our patio gardens with as many attractive red flowers as possible. While at Mansion de Chocolate make sure to look out for the hummingbirds as they zoom about the gardens. At any given time we have at least 5 hummingbirds throughout the property. We believe that their favorite plants here are the flowers locally known as ginjibre – the tall reed like plants with single red cone shaped flowers.
