Bilwi

Bilwi, with an approximate population of 60,000, is the main city of the municipality of Puerto Cabezas in the North Atlantic Coast department (Región Autónoma del Atlántico Norte) of Nicaragua.

The municipality and the entire region are indigenous lands. The city of Bilwi is part of The Community of Karata, including land north of Bilwi which borders The Community of Ten Communities. The owners are the various community groups who have demarcated their particular land areas.

The culture, like the rest of Nicaragua's Caribbean coast, has a very prominent Caribbean influence. The population is mainly Spanish speaking, but there are also very large groups of Creole and Miskito.
