Laguna Charco Verde, Isla de Ometepe

3.9
#4 of 7 in Parks in Isla de Ometepe
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.

  • You get entry into a small butterfly garden with the entry fee. On the hike we had our closest encounter with howler monkeys. The beach is small. First time I seen a barb wire fence around one.  more »
  • This place was so beautiful, we had an amazing time hiking and my kids enjoyed the butterfly garden, it offers a beautiful view of the volcano.  more »
  • We have done all the suggested walks (there are 3). All took us 1 h 30. There are nice views on the volcano Maderas and design, but there are other points of view on the island better and above all free... See the Butterfly House is nice but small. We saw monkeys Screamers and it is top! But most of the time, you walk without seeing anything. Many points of view are no longer available because the trees have grown enormously. To sum up, it's nice but not worth the $ 5 charged at the entrance. If you spend little time on the island, there are other things to do first!
