Laguna Charco Verde, Isla de Ometepe

4.3
#4 of 8 in Nature in Rivas Department
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.

  • Definitely worth a visit, this beautiful green Lake. You can go walking, animal watching. There are several walks are possible, you can also walk around the Lake, in about 1 to 1.5 hours, take enough to drink with it. There is also a butterfly garden, near the entrance, also nice to visit. There is also a shop with what souvenirs and t shirts.

  • Absolutely gorgeous and so many opportunities to see wildlife and further experience the country. Great hikes and butterfly place was incredible  more »
  • It is one of the stios with more nature in Nicaragua. It has a butterfly garden in which different plants and, of course, butterflies of several species are seen. It's very interesting. The route that can be done is beautiful and tranquil. In addition, the place in which we swim, was also very quiet, because there was almost no one. A part of the journey has lots of green vegetation that is precious.

  • Very nice place, where you can take a walk in the forest. We saw a few monkeys and lots of insects. 5$ fee for foreigners. 3$ fee for Nicaraguans.
  • If you enjoy to walk around the fauna and flora this is your place because it's really natural but sadly if you're looking for animal it's complicated to see that but if you're fanatic of birth you can see a lot of kinda of them , here.
  • A very natural and with a legend and mystical yet attractive place.
