Somoto Canyon (4.5 hours from Lake Apoyo)

The Somoto Canyon is one of oldest rock formations in Central America and has become a main attraction of Northern Nicaragua since its discovery in 2004.

It spans over 420 acres with the vertical walls over 120 metres high that go on for about 5 miles.

At some points these cliffs are only 5 metres from each other.

The wildlife and flora fill your adventure with sight, sound, colour and fragrance.

The clear fresh water is inviting for a swim as you wind your way through the serpentine waterway
