Viewpoint in Catarina

Catarina’s main claim to fame offers views across the startling blue waters of Laguna de Apoyo to Granada and Lago de Nicaragua all the way to Ometepe. This spot is rumored to have been youthful Augusto C Sandino’s (Nicaraguan revolutionary who rebelled again the US) favorite place to meditate, though don't come with expectations of peace and quiet, since the mirador comes with its own attendant circus of marimba players, street food sellers and pony rides.

There’s a half-hour trail to the water, with excellent views.
