Volcano Tour

Have you ever wanted to peer into the gaping, lava-bubbling and bottomless vent of an active volcano? Well here is your chance! Nicaragua's Masaya Volcano National Park contains two volcanoes, one of which - dubbed La Boca del Infierno ('the mouth of hell') by the Spanish conquerors centuries ago - continuously emits sulfur gases and has erupted several time since records began.

The eruptions have contributed towards dramatic changes in the surroundings. Volcanic rock and ash cover many areas, yet there is still plenty of verdant forest which escaped damage, making for an interesting contrast. Many different types of vegetation have appeared as a result of the eruptions and the park is also rich in wildlife. Coyotes, skunks, raccoons, opossums, deer, iguanas, and monkeys all call Masaya National Park home.

We offer our guests the opportunity to see this spectacular sight up close, and there is no hiking involved!

Evening Tour: $30

Kayaking, Paddle-boarding

A lakeside hotel wouldn't be complete without its own supply of kayak boats, paddle boards . We keep kayaks, paddle boards , which guests are welcome to use whenever they'd like during the day.

You might want to just splash around near the beach or maybe you'd like to test your strength (and determination) and cross all the way to the other side of Laguna de Apoyo! In any case, all guests are required to wear life jackets before using equipment. Safety first.
