We went to spend the day at Laguna de Apoyo with our family, we had a very good time and fun. The food were amazing and the service outstanding.

Great location to visit as they have kayaks, paddle boards available to rent. Highly recommend it!!

For fans of true escapism, Laguna de Apoyo is hard to top. From it's stunning vistas to its heated crystal-clear waters, it's a unique respite from a busy world.

We got a Private Taxi from Granada to the look out at Catarina, Magnificent view of Lake Apoyo on a beautiful day. The Crater Lake has blue water surrounded by the lushness of Apoyo Lagoon Reserve. Continued on to Paradiso Hostel & Restaurant for the day-pass. Great beach, dining options/bar area on a manicured property. A chillin vibe with a fun younger crowd. We used their shuttle van option back, Paradiso has shuttle service to their sister property The Oasis Hostel in Granada. Good food & drink on the a semi secluded beach on the thermal springed Lake Apoyo. (reasonably priced day depends on your dining/bar needs ) Maravilloso !!!

Closest place to paradise. The lagoon was amazing, surroundings unbelievable, the people around the area very friendly. We really got in touch with the nature doing kayak, swimming, having breakfast in the early morning watching the sunrise was an unforgettable experience.

This is a beautiful lagoon nestled in the crater of an old volcano. The water is a beautiful blue colour and the lagoon has some of the cleanest water in Central America. It’s a perfect place to go swimming and relax by the shore. There are a number of restaurants and hotels scattered along the shore of the lake. You can either go to the lagoon as part of a day pass with one of the hotels or there are some spots where you can get to the lagoon yourself. In some parts of the lake the water is nicely warmed by the volcanic soil underneath which is also very pleasant. This is one of our favourite places in Nicaragua and well worth the visit when you’re in the area.

Splashed and played in the warm water. As it was windy there were many waves, but never the less it was fun :-) Water appeared clean.

Beautiful lake and surrounding with amazing nature. A lot of flowers, birds, monkeys, frogs. Apoyo is a good place for unnoisy environment. No sound of traffic.

Laguna de Apoyo is a must see when in Nicaragua. You have great views of the the Lagoon from Catarina or you can buy a day pass at one of the many resorts located down on the waters edge. Super clean and clear water and now motorized boats allowed

Apoyo lagoon is a beautiful place to visit, but nothing too special. The nice part of the lagoon are only accessible thru hotels/resorts, which means you need to pay the "day pass” for a swimming or just want to relax with a drink...

Beautiful crater lake in Nicaragua. We were at a lookout point in Catarina with little shops, restaurants, live music and more - it was quite lovely!
