The Monkey Hut is a friendly hostel located in the shoreline of Apoyo, one of Nicaragua's oldest crater lakes. This establishment, which owes its name to the howler monkeys that inhabit the area, provides a relaxing environment with panoramic views of the lagoon, which is also an important natural reserve.

The hotel offers three lodging options. For those looking for privacy, there are three double rooms and one comfy. The dorm room will be suitable for visitors wanting to mix and mingle. Furthermore, as the Monkey Hut is located only half an hour from Managua, and less than 20 minutes from Granada, it is also an ideal destiny for day trips (entrance fee: US$6.9).

When visiting the place, visitors have the right to use kayaks, ranchos, inner-tubes, life vests, free wireless internet, free coffee, comfortable chairs, hammocks, kitchen, BBQ and other facilities that will be found throughout the property.

In addition, the property can also be rented for special events, such as weddings, conferences and training. Catamarans and sailboats can be rented in case visitors are looking to explore the whole area. For further information on this, please contact the hotel.
