The Apoyo Lagoon offers a unique opportunity to relax and enjoy nature. The lake, which is thermally ventilated, keeps a very pleasant temperature year round. This makes it ideal for swimming, diving, and watersports. These, however are limited to those that do not require an engine, since the lake has been declared a protected area and motors are not allowed. It is perfect for sailing and paddling, as well as for lake diving.
