My boyfriend and I stayed at the beautiful Apoyo Lodge for 3 nights in November 2013 — it was absolutely beautiful, peaceful and a perfect place to shift gears and start our trip in Nicaragua. The laguna water was so warm and clear, and the view from the balcony unbeatable. Shamus and Sasha have obviously put a lot of care into all the details around the property — from the beautiful furnishings, small library, yoga platform, landscaping and kitchen to the outdoor dining area and beautiful rooms.
As we had just arrived we wanted to explore a bit around the area, which Shamus was happy to arrange a driver for us. One note for budgeting is that the driver transfers were a bit pricier than we expected, and as the location is so remote there aren’t too many options, although Shamus kindly ran us into Masaya to do some sightseeing one day. Costs are still reasonable given the distances, prepare to pay about $20USD per trip to Masaya/Granada and more to Momotombo.
I would definitely come back and stay at Apoyo Lodge – its also perfect for a larger group of friends or family, and I have dreams of doing a yoga retreat there one day with some of Sasha’s yummy vegan food. Huge kudos to Shamus and Sasha for creating this Oasis!More
