Nicaragua's Somoto Canyon seeks to become CentAm's first geopark

Description

Somoto, Dec 9 (EFE).- Somoto Canyon, home to some of the most impressive geological landscapes in Central America, is seeking to be listed by UNESCO as the first geopark in the region.Over thousands of years, with the erosion caused by rain and the Coco River's waters, Somoto Canyon, located in the like-named Nicaraguan city, was formed.The waters of the Coco River, the longest waterway in Nicaragua at 680 kilometers (422 miles) long, flow along an open channel in the middle of the walls of a rocky area, resembling the curves of a slithering snake.The canyon, in addition to being home to a variety of species, such as deer and river otters, has great geological resources and several pre-Columbian archaeological sites are nearby.Nicaraguan government officials, along with local authorities and with the assistance of Spain's Andalusian Agency for Development Cooperation (AACIC), worked to present UNESCO with the area's candidacy for listing as a geopark covering four municipalities in Madriz province.
