Pacaya Lodge and Spa is a luxury resort overlooking the clear waters of Nicaragua’s iconic crater lake. The only 5 star resort at Laguna de Apoyo, our intimate property offers a boutique experience twenty minutes from Granada.
Each of the twenty-six rooms offers a stunning view over the jungle canopy to the crater lake below, with Granada and Lake Nicaragua visible on the horizon. The lodge and casitas feature furniture, art and decor created by local artisans, blending an authentic Nicaraguan feel with the lodge’s warm, contemporary design.
Located about halfway between the cities of Granada and Masaya, Pacaya Lodge and Spa is in the heart of Nicaragua’s picturesque Pueblos Blancos, villages known for their quality, authentic art and handicrafts. Pacaya is a perfect hopping-off point to explore neighboring market villages, to hike nearby volcanoes, to spend the day at the beach, or enjoy an evening in Granada.
Pacaya Lodge and Spa is committed to giving back to the vibrant communities of Laguna de Apoyo. They recognize that in addition to being the right thing to do, investing in the community makes good business sense.
In a country where fewer than 10% of rural youth finish high school, Pacaya Lodge and Spa is supporting the education of 240 students from surrounding communities by contributing a percentage of all lodge revenues to Emprendedora, a technical high school located 10km from the lodge. The school, which is operated by Opportunity International Nicaragua, offers students technical education in tourism or agriculture, Nicaragua’s two leading industries. In addition to contributing revenues directly to the school, Pacaya Lodge engages school services such as laundry, sources produce from its working farm and offers internships and professional development opportunities to outstanding students.
