Central America is an absolutely beautiful part of the world, and Nicaragua is no exception. While we were there, we visited the nearby Apoyo Lagoon or Laguna de Apoyo. Imagine a huge volcano that imploded in on itself thousands of years ago and then filled with water. That is what happened when the Apoyo Volcano erupted. The eruption created a thermally vented warm, clear, and blue body of water in the crater of a volcano. Lush forests slope down into the water, and the area is home to all kinds of birds and animals. We only had time for a quick stop and the day was cloudy, but it was well worth it to see this natural wonder of Nicaragua.
