Temperatures in Granada can go up to 40 degrees celsius: it’s hot, humid and sticky and if you are not lucky enough to have a hostel with a pool, all you’ll want to do is to lay under a fan. A great activity to break the routine and to freshen up is a fun trip to the laguna de Apoyo: a small volcanic lake not far from the city. While most tour companies will offer you an all-inclusive day trip, you can get here easily on your own with chicken buses. The lake was formed in a crater, its waters are fresh and there are plenty of hostels and beach bars were you can spend a lazy day suntanning, or rent a kayak for a little adventure.

Beautiful volcanic lake about a 45 minute drive on a good road from Managua. There are a number of popular hostels there, kayaks, restaurants and a good vibe. Definitely go check it out for an easy day trip from the capital.

Spend the day enjoying Laguna de Apoyo. Only 20 minutes from Granada. A volcanic crater filled with fresh swimming water. Laguna Beach Club is a great location to realx and enjoy the environment.

Laguna de Apoyo is a lake in the bottom of a volcano crater. This is Nicaragua's cleanest place to swim. There are a few quiet guesthouses along the shore, but not much else. Beautiful place to swim and relax for a few days.

Attractive fresh water lagoon set inside the caldera of an old volcano. Masaya Volcano makes for an attractive back drop. It is possible to swim here but the water is deep.

This crater lake is located about 25 minutes from Casa Xanadu and features places along the crater's shores where you can swim, relax and take in the view of this huge body of water only minutes from Granada.
