Venture out to one of the most magical places in Nicaragua, Laguna de Apoyo Natural Reserve. This outdoor activity will introduce you to the tranquility of this mystical location inside of an extinct volcano. Kayak, swim in volcanic mineral rich water or just relax at the waters edge.

The day will start in the morning with a pickup from your hotel, and will make its first stop in Catarina to see the lagoon from above, as you get a great perspective of the beauty of this place. The tour will then drive down along the crater as you enjoy all the views of the lagoon and see more of the Nicaraguans who live there. Once there, you'll be able to relax, swim, lay on hammocks, take out the kayaks or simply exfoliate your body with the black volcanic sand.

The reserve houses a tropical dry forest ecosystem. The flora consists of various species of plants and tropical dry trees, such as pochote, black rosewood, mahogany, hogplum, and guacuco, as well as a large variety and amount of orchids.
