Laguna Charco Verde, Isla de Ometepe

4.1
#4 of 7 in Parks in Isla de Ometepe
Water Body Nature / Park
Verdant nature trails with looming trees, lovely dark-sanded beaches, and excellent swimming conditions await at Laguna Charco Verde. Access the lush greenery here via a short walking trail, and then enjoy swimming in the calm waters. Note that while the water appears murky, this is not due to lack of sanitation but rather the sediments from the bottom of the lake mixing with the water. Local legend tells of an ancient, lanky witch called Chico Largo, who occasionally appears in the lake to go fishing.

  • The lake is ok and nice to walk around but if you follow the path along to the beach heading for the cliffs you will find many snakes (no guaranteed) and a beautiful place where birds are hatching out...  more »
  • Not as nice as i expected. I would rather to get lost in any part of the island rather than know about the main spot of the Island but IMHO, this spot is way touristic for me. Nice too see though! .  more »
  • As the family walked around the Lake, I was doing exercises. Very nice views, the butterfly garden very nice.
