“The next stop was another great surprise, the Apoyo Lagoon. From the Catarina viewpoint, the scenery is like a real canvas… an idyllic place to freeze time and contemplate nature.”

“I wanted to stay in this city for a few more days and continue exploring the wonders of these incredible places, but unfortunately, my trip was coming to an end.”

Paulo Pavão said that in Nicaragua there is so much nature, so much history, so many cultural and gastronomic experiences and so many warm and hospitable people that will remain in his memory for a long time, assuring that he will revisit the country.
