Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Puerto Cabezas

Puerto Cabezas (English: Bragman's Bluff; Miskito: Bilwi) is a municipality in, and capital of, 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 under national law providing for recognition of aboriginal title to the land.

The University of the Autonomous Regions of the Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast (URACCAN) has a campus in Puerto Cabezas, as well as in several other locations in RAAN and RAAS. The city is served by Puerto Cabezas Airport.

The culture, like the rest of Nicaragua's Caribbean coast, has a very prominent Caribbean influence.

Hurricane Felix hit Puerto Cabezas on September 4, 2007, killing about 100 people.

Puerto Cabezas is sister city to Burlington, Vermont, USA, and has been since the mid-1980s. They also have a sister city of Luleå in Sweden.

Bilwi has a "sistership" link with Manchester.
