In this diocese there are several indigenous peoples and communities that enrich the history of our country: Mestizos, Garífunas, Ramas, Misquitos, Mayagnas and Creoles whose culture and customs enhance history.
In the diocese, several languages are also spoken: Miskito, Rama, English Creole and Spanish.
