Following pickup from your Managua hotel, travel to the Apoyo Lagoon, located in a crater between the cities of Granada and Catarina. Nicaragua's cleanest lagoon is also its deepest at 656 feet (200 meters.)
Walk through the tropical forest, enjoying engaging and informative commentary from your guide while on the lookout for white-faced and howler monkeys, toucans and hummingbirds. Jump or wade in the lagoon for a refreshing dip or just relax on the banks.
Stop by the Villas at Apoyo for lunch (own expense). This luxury resort is tucked into the hillsides surrounding the lagoon and offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. Sign up for a kayak tour (own expense) if you're interested in getting a different perspective.
Enjoy drop-off back at your hotel at the conclusion of the full 8-hour day exploring the wonders of Apoyo Lagoon.
