Laguna Charco Verde, Isla de Ometepe

(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
