So happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay .. we have had an exceptionally heavy rainy season which has nourished the greenery but definitely has taken some of the beach! Hope you can make it back again someday. Thanks for your stay and...More

About the neighbourhood
Alchemy on the Lake is located in the Laguna de Apoyo EcoReserve .. it is approximately 50 minute drive from the International Airport and 20 minute drive from the colonial city of Granada! We are located lakeside and between Masaya and Granada ..
Getting around
Although a car is not necessary for those staying longer periods of time you may want to rent a car for a portion of your stay. There are however several local buses per day which are not always reliable but inexpensive! As well one of the nearby resorts has a shuttle bus that transports people between Apoyo Lagoon (Laguna de Apoyo) and Granada at set times (approx. $3/person/one way) ... I'm happy to arrange transportation and tours for those who want to see the area including .. active Masaya Volcano, dormant Mombacho volcano .. cloud forest or Las Isletas for a kayak or boat tour.
Car not needed
How to get there
