Laguna de Apoyo
A clear turqouise thermal-lake in the center of the ancient Apoyo Volcano. The temperature of the lake averages 80-85 degrees, and gets warmer the deeper you swim, as it is vented by a still active thermal volcano.
Guests will have access to an eclectic lake-side restaurant, kayaks & tubes, lounging chairs, & a sunbathing platform in the middle of the lake that you may jump off. Laguna de Apoyo is a great location to unwind, get some sun, & enjoy the warm water inside the dense jungle-covered rim of the volcano.
The Colonial-city of Granada is both at once the oldest city on the continent, & the most developed tourism destination in Northern Nicaragua. The city is renowned for its Spanish-Colonial architecture & postcard cathedrals. Granada is a city full of bright colors, violent history, lake-side breezes, volcanic backdrops, bustling streets & markets, & the sounds of horse-drawn carriages carrying locals to & from work. Guides will explain the history of the city as guests are introduced to the local culture & cuisine while exploring the notable sights in the city.
Masaya & Masaya Volcano
Guests will visit nearby Masaya to visit the largest open-air market in Nicaragua, & try a variety of native fruits, vegetables, chocolates, & types of coffee. After the market, we will venture to nearby Catarina which has outstanding views of the volcanos & lakes in the region, as well as artisanal crafts.
An entire evening s dedicated to visiting the infamous Masaya Volcano, where guests' have an opportunity to have direct contact with the country's most active crater, which boasts lush flora & fauna, as well as diverse wildlife. It is best seen at night, as you can hear the caldera, smell the sulphury gas, & witness a lava lake that is constantly erupting.
Last but not least & the third volcano on this epic journey across North-Central Nicaragua is to hike Mombacho Volcano. With its last major eruption in 1595, this 4,400ft (1345 meter) volcano is the defining feature of the Granada skyline & can be seen for over 100 miles away.
