The Apoyo Lagoon, or Laguna de Apoyo, is one of the most pristine lagoons in Nicaragua. The lagoon was created when a volcano erupted hundreds of thousands of years ago. Nowadays, the lagoon is surrounded by green, tree-covered hills. The water is sky-blue and the water temperature is always great for swimming.
Laguna de Apoyo is less than an hour from Managua. You should take the highway to Masaya (Carretera Masaya), and pass Masaya. At kilometer 37.5 you take a right (there are some signs, but do pay attention!). Keep following the road, and take a right where it stops and hits another road (this is after about 15 minutes from the highway). After maybe one minute you can enter the road that descends to the lagoon on your left.
There are also buses that go to the lagoon, but not all of them go down all the way. Sometimes you'll have to walk the last path. Public transportation can be taken either in the Masaya Market or at the entrance of the lagoon, located in the Km 37.5.
