Location

La Laguna Número 1, Departamento de Masaya, Nicaragua

The Laguna de Apoyo is a pristine sapphire blue crater lake located in a biological reserve, roughly an hour south east of the Managua airport. The colonial city of Granada lies a short 25 minute drive to the east , the bustling local city of Masaya is 25 minutes west. The crater is carved out of an elevated mesa that is a bit cooler and greener than the surrounding lowlands. This verdant mesa , home to the "Pueblos Blancos", is a wonderful area to explore. Also of interest ( must see! ) is the Volcan Mombacho where guides will walk you around the four active craters at the rainforest park encompassing the mountains peak. A bit further afield is the Chocoyero bird sanctuary , on the gorgeous drive through the steep hills and pineapple fields between Conception and Tiquantepe...

Quinta Lee sits midway along the north side of the crater facing south , roughly 2 KM east ( left) from the bottom of the road down to the lake. The forest is semi-arid tropical rainforest and is alive with a great many species of birds and butterflies , many of which will visit you at the house. Families of howler monkeys prowl in the treetop canopies , night birds and cicada seranade the night. It's all a bit like Eden.....The lake is warm and clear and said to have healing powers - "Apoyo" means help . The swimming is so great!

The pacific beaches are only an hour ( Pochomil / Huehuete) or two ( Popoyo/Gigante) away for a day trip or a quick overnight stay. The cooler mountain areas around Matagalpa and Esteli are a few hours north. Quinta Lee is the perfect base from which to explore the area. And , wherever the day has taken you , there is nothing like returning home for a dip into the lake under a starry sky...
