Lago de Apanas





One of the most beautiful artificial lakes is Laguna de Apanas. It is also historically very important, it was created in the 60’s under the Somozas’s administration to generate hydroelectric power for Nicaragua.

It is located only 10 minutes from Jinotega and 3 hours from the capital city. Lake Apanas enjoys an undeniable great location and pleasant weather all year round with temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is also a Ramsar ( Wetland conservation organization ) protected area that is internationally recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

At the same time there are many other private and natural reserves surrounding the lake. This stunning site offers travelers opportunities for hiking, bird watching, horse-back riding, exploring flora and fauna and looking out great landscapes.
