We viewed Apoyo from above at Catalina-gorgeous ! Then went to a beach club (LBC:Laguna Beach Club) to swim , kayak, picnic, paddle boat all day. Warm waters but there's a quick drop off so if not a strong swimmer wear a life jacket.

This lake is just beautiful. Warm water to swim in and just a great way to spend a day as a day trip from Granada. We loved it.

Stayed at a retreat on the lake to get away from the hustle and bustle of Grenada. Tranquil lake with really clear water and a constant 30 degree temperature! Lovely to relax in, although not much else to do there so just come to chill...More

Beautiful getaway from Granada. The water is lovely and warm and there are lots of activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding or simply lying in the sun taking in the stunning surroundings.

This place was great with teenagers. We had fun swimming, kayaking and sun bathing! It kept the kids entertained and me relaxed!

Laguna de Apoyo is a hidden gem, which invites for a swim, but at least find one of the view points (for example in Catarina) to be dazzled by its beauty.

Was in Nicaragua on a mission trip, this was a nice break from the third world issues. We went here the last afternoon before we returned to the US to relax and decompress.

The crater lake water is very warm, clear and nice to swim in. I suspect water quality may be an issue so spit, don't swallow.

Get a cheap hotel and then search for a local house for rent with the local people. If you're planning to retire here I imagine that at least you speak Spanish fluently right ? So just walk around the small shops and sure... More
