The Monkey Hut Reviews


The Monkey Hut in the Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua, is a beautiful hostel/beach in the middle of a natural reserve. The hostel, which derives its name from the many resident howler monkeys, is situated at the crater's crystal clear lagoon and offers visitors spectacular views of the beautiful surroundings. Visitors can stay in one of our three double-sized private rooms, our luxury cabaña or our dormitory, or can simply stay for the day. Enjoy swimming and the floating dock, sunbathing, kayaking, sailing, BBQ, Italian oven-made pizzas, massages, and much more... Simply relax!

The property can also be rented for special events such as weddings, company conferences or trainings. Please contact us for more information.
