In Hostal Ulap Yasica we have recovered a few names in Matagalpa Lenguage with the purpose of expose some of the indegenous roots of the area.
The Mataglapa Lenguage (extint) was the native language of the Matagalpa Indians, belonging to the Misumalpan languages (Miskito, Sumo and Matagalpa), which have a chibcha origin.
Ulap Yasica: “House on the road to Yasica”
The hostel vindicates the existence of the Matagalpas, highlights the region of Yasica and incorporates elements of their culture in the names of the rooms and other spaces, to divulge elements of the lenguage Matagalpa. Visits to Yasica Sur communities are also promoted, where predominates coffee cultivation and subsistence activities of small farmers.

Aiko – Moon
Amiske Doysi – Mother Earth
Lal – Sun
Li – Water
Soni – Snail
Yau – Deer
Yulo – Bird
