Nestled in the treetops above the clear warm waters of a volcanic crater lake, we offer budget travelers the ethical and economic choice to stay in the laguna. All proceeds of your stay go directly to fund the work of ...More the Peace Project Nicaragua, a registered NGO. We offer private single, double and family rooms, four dorms, al fresco dining on our deck, free wifi, free kayaks, a friendly ambiance and an on-site Activity Center, featuring an amazing diving experience with Volcano Divers. Experience one of Nicaragua's top tourist attractions. Set in the midst of a protected nature reserve, the beauty of the Laguna is enchanting, from the spectacular sunrise over the lake, to the howler monkeys that greet the dawn, and the lovely breezes that provide respite from the heat of the big Nicaraguan cities. We are very accessible, only 45 minutes from Managua's international airport and a short drive from the charming colonial city of Granada. Less
