Laguna de Apoyo is a little piece of paradise just a few kilometers off the highway between Masaya and Granada. The whole lake is the crater of an old volcano and the stunning views are surrounded by the crater rim as you sit on the edge of the lake. During the day, you can take out a kayak or a tube and float around in the lake or hang about on one of the many pontoons that they have floating about.

The town itself is just one main road that drives around the laguna. There are no real shops anywhere but there are very basic tiendas around, where you can buy basic things like water, alcohol, and canned or dried foods. All of the hostels in Laguna de Apoyo are located on this main road and you just ask your bus driver or taxi driver where to get off for your hostel.

Getting to Laguna de Apoyo can be a challenge. They run buses from Granada and Masaya; only a few of them actually head down onto the road that has all of the hostels. Most buses only go to the crater's edge and then you have to take a taxi further down the road. Only two or three times a day do they have buses that run down to the bottom so check that out with your hostel if you are on a super tight budget and want to take the bus; otherwise, you will at some point need to stop and change from bus to taxi.
