THE STORY OF NICOA

A NATIVE LEADER

This is the story of Nicoa El Cacique Chorotega. (A native king from the chorotega region). Nicoa was the last great ruler of the Chorotega lineage and the father of the princess Nosara. Cacique Nicoya was a descendant of the first Chorotegas who arrived in what is now Guanacaste and who conquered all the towns in that region, including the Corobicíes of South American tradition.
He was lord and master of all the Chorotega peoples. Upon their arrival in 1522, the Spanish conquerors led by Captain Gil González Dávila were able to confirm Nicoya's supremacy over other caciques and his name lives on today in the second canton of Guanacaste, a gulf and peninsula.
Regarding the origin of its name it is traditionally attributed roots of the Nahuatl language, the one spoken by the Aztecs and its meaning is "way of the warriors" or "corn on one side and the other".
