The Laguna de Apoyo ecosystem is one of Central America's most unique environments, and an ecosystem unto itself. It is truly exotic and one of a kind. Within the lake and amongst the forested hillside on which the property sits can be found:
200 species of birds (65 migratory) - including toucans, hummingbirds, oropendulas, parrots, and falcons.
220 butterfly species
Howler and white-face monkeys
500 species of plants and tropical dry trees - including mahogany, black rosewood, and orchids
Fish species found nowhere else in the world
Wildlife is easily observable from each villa, or by walking the hotel property and surrounding hiking trails. The lake itself is one of the most pristine natural swimming environments in all of Nicaragua, with crystal clear water fed by underground thermal mineral springs and, at its center, depths of more than 200 meters.
We're centrally located, only 10 km north of Granada and 8 km west of Masaya, with all the major tourist sites easily reachable. We offer our own guided tours, or can help you plan self-guided trips. Apoyo Resort is the perfect place to be your home base as you explore Nicaragua.

Apoyo Resort is located in the middle of the Laguna Apoyo Natural Reserve, it is there where our guests can see the white face and howler monkeys that live in the Tropical Dry Forest Eco System surrounding the property.
The Reserve is managed by the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (MARENA). We take special pride in our stewardship of being in the Reserve and under MARENA supervision through operating the resort in balance with nature.
We offer guided tours of the Laguna area in conjunction with MARENA. What helps makes Apoyo unique is that Nicaragua instituted protection laws many years ago to help preserve the rich biodiversity the Laguana offers. This has insured the Reserve is protected from over development and spoil.
This coupled with the great pride the local people take in insuring the Reserve keeps its pristine stature all contribute to making it a unique environment where flora and fauna flourish. The Crater lake and the dry forest have unique animals to the Apoyo ecosystem.
