Well... Hotel Zapatera in Lake Nicaragua is the place to unplug from the world. Beach, Hikes, Volcanic Lagoon, View of Volcan Mombacho, Pre-Colombian Archaeological Site, and much more. You have to go. Rafael and staff will make you feel like family.

My girlfriend and I had an unforgettable stay at Bahia Zapatera. We had been looking for something a little off the beaten path and couldn't have been more pleased. This was the part of the trip that we had the least expectations, but ended up being our favorite spot. Rafael was a great host and was very welcoming, doing everything...

Hotel Bahia Zapatera was a great place to relax!! It is a great place to go hiking, and also they provide a unique tour experience. I spent the day there, and had lunch. The fish served at lunch was so fresh and tasty! I will definitely be vising again in the near future, it was a great experience.
