El Lago Verde, El Golfo

(3.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the wonders of nature on a visit to El Lago Verde, a striking green lagoon in a volcanic crater. Deriving its color from rare microorganisms and volcanic minerals, the lake is bordered by impressive black sand beaches leading to the El Golfo village. Admire the contrasting colors of the lake and black sand from the surrounding cliffs or walk down to the lake’s edge for an up-close look. After your visit, stop in the village for a meal at one of the oceanfront restaurants.
