    I'm so embarrassed to know that the management of this company along with the a Guy named Luis who is responsible to take the pictures are getting together to steal money from people . I paid $15 for them to send me that canopy pictures and they haven't send Anyhtjng . I visited this place on July 5 2013 and today is July 11 and they still haven't send me the pictures . I called twice and they said that they are going to send them but nothing yet

    This is a scam company - I do not recommend this canopy tour - The worst part is that the local Goverment knows about this scam and they do not do Anyhtjng - The same day that I visited there was another group from Costa Rica , they also charged them $15 for the Pictutes and they haven not recoevrd Anyhtjng yet

    My kids and I had the best time last November 2010. We did Monbacho and Tiscapa canopy tour. The only thing is that I paid $15.00 to have them email me my pictures and I never got them.

The lagoon itself has a surface of almost 15 hectares and was formed about 10,000 years ago as a crater lake of a currently extinct volcano. Before the Spanish conquest there were several legends among the indigenous people inspired by the lagoon. Pre-Columbian remains have also been found around the lake.

  • Getting There

    Tiscapa is ten minutes (in car) from the Metrocentro shopping mall, and only five minutes from the Plaza Inter shopping mall. The easiest way of getting there without your own vehicle is by taxi. The thousands of cheap taxis that cruise Managua will all know how to find Tiscapa.

    If you are driving yourself go in the direction of the Plaza Inter shopping mall. Right behind it lays the (pyramid shaped) Crown Plaza hotel. The road that leads to the Tiscapa lagoon is next to the hotel.
