it is a nice reserve. If you visit it, you will find a lot of exciting species that live in it. One of them is the salamandra that is the most exoctic species you can find in nicaragua. You can also see the beautiful crater that adorns this reserve. It is appropiate to have a walk, because you can breathe... More

This is a most beautiful and atmospheric location in Nicaragua. I wish I had made time to stay longer. I stayed 3 nights at the Estacion Biologica which is linked with the Spanish School. I was able to help out with some of the research projects going on at the station and also hired guides to take me on some... More

We were blown away when we arrived at this beautiful and tranquile nature spot. The transport to the laguna isn't easy, unless you are willing to pay for a taxi. But this also makes it less crowded and comfortably quiet. We had a bad experience though, when we were hiking up to the viewpoint of Katarina, where we were robbed... More

We hooked up with a tour guide in Granada that recommended the laguna de apoyo, best recommendation ever. For $35 our group of 6 was driven to The Monkey Hut, a small hostel/resort on the lake. There is a public beach (free) but it was CROWDED. The Monkey Hut charged $6 per person, offered reasonably priced food and beverages and... More

Laguna de Apoyo is a lake in a dormant volcano. It reminds me of our own Crater Lake in southern Oregon. The great difference is you can swim and sail in it. The water is pristine and the wind clean and steady. Listen for the "holler monkeys". Don't miss the view from the rim of the volcano from the lovely... More
