Nicaragua has tourist destinations that make our country be visited by many tourists every year. One of them is the Mirador de Catarina or Catarina Viewpoint, in the municipality of Catarina, department of Masaya. Catarina belongs to Los Pueblos Blancos tourist corridor.

With an impressive view due to its location in one of the highest hills of the municipality, from the viewpoint it is possible to admire the Apoyo Lagoon, the Charco de Tisma, the Great Lake of Nicaragua, the city of Granada, the Mombacho Volcano, and the Sierra of Amerrisque in Chontales.

Dating from 1817, the Church of Catarina is another very popular attraction, with a spectacular colonial style and painted murals on its ceiling, which enhance its interior, with images of the Virgin, Risen Christ, Holy Spirit, Holy Trinity and the Holy Family.

Apoyo Lagoon, located between the departments of Masaya and Granada, formed in the crater of an extinct volcano, with an estimated depth of 200 meters. Declared a Natural Reserve in 1991, it is the largest lagoon in Nicaragua. Because of its volcanic origin, when the water reaches its maximum level, the gases that the volcano still expels in certain places generate natural thermal springs. Its name is related to the taste of its waters (Alt-poyec: brackish water). It houses a large number of animal and plant species, some of them endemic, conserving a great part of its natural wealth. Diving, swimming, surfing with sail, and navigation without motor, are some of the activities that are offered to tourists, sports lovers, and families. In addition, skydiving, hiking and rappel are practiced from its slopes. Some hotels available here are: San Simián, The Monkey Hut, Apoyo Resort, Estación Biológica, Pájaro Azul Hostel, Paraiso Hostel, Selva Azul Hotel, Laguna Beach Club, Pacaya Lodge and Spa.
