  • It is an ideal place to go to spend the afternoon. From the lookout, you can see the support lagoon and Lake Cocibolca, so the views deserve quite worthwhile.

  • At least on the day we went, it was extremely windy. The view from the overlook, though, is stunning. There is also a small marketplace, but we didn't do any shopping there. It is definitely worth it ...  more »

  • It has an amazing view and landscapes. Definitely it is a priceless privilege being there. You can buy a huge variety of souvenirs and ride lovely horses around the place.
  • Really amazing view of the lake that used to be a volcano. Sometimes it can get very windy. Lots of vendors around with nice craft works. As well as some coffee shops. There is also horse riding available. Definitely one of the places you want to visit if you go to Nicaragua.
  • One of the most beautiful place in Nicaragua, pure air, good views, good places to seat and just watch the lagoon. Just try to go at 6 am to see the dawn, or get at 3 pm, to have the best views. You can practice horse riding, it has good places to eat, and also you can see Granada, Nicaragua's lake and mombacho volcano at the same time.
  • nice place ... must do in Nicaragua. there's a small and nice hiking way, but we weren't prepared to do it. the restaurants are nice - all offer a little bit different things. prices are okay. only the local sellers annoy a little bit.
  • The place is super lovely. Its got a gorgeous look of the Laguna de Apoyo and you can even see Granada and the great Nicaraguan lake. The place is always super windy which is nice on a hot day but don't let it fool you because you can easily get sun burn. The only disappointment was the restaurant, I have not try them all but they look pretty much the same and the food was just terrible. I really hope someone comes up wit a beautiful restaurant to do that place justice.
