Transportation to Apoyo Lagoon


Laguna de Apoyo is a lake located in the caldera (huge crater) of an ancient extinct volcano. Approximately 6 km in diameter and 175 m deep, it is about 150 m lower than the level of the surrounding plateau. Since the lake's drainage area is fairly small, forested, and contains little population or agriculture, the lake's waters are remarkably transparent (as compared, e.g. with the much murkier Lake Cocibolca around Isla Ometepe).
