Private Tour of Lake Nicaragua | Mukul, an Auberge Resort
Located less than two hours north of Mukul, an Auberge Resort is Nicaragua’s prized colonial city of Granada. Filled with immense charm and an abundance of colorful shops and markets, a visit to the city is a not-to-miss experience during a trip to the country. Whether you wish to browse handmade ceramics and paintings at the local Masaya market or prefer to sip artisan espressos at a nearby café, you’re sure to find a cultural adventure in Nicaragua’s most revered city.
Nestled near Granada is Lake Nicaragua, home to a splendid view of towering, cloud-shrouded Volcán Mombacho. During a stay at Mukul, you can book an exclusive visit to the area. Enjoy a cruise of the islets of Lake Nicaragua to the Pellas family’s Cocibolca Lake House, an exclusive escape only open to guests of Mukul. “El Descanso” – or “resting place” – has been in the Pellas family since the 1930s, but you will find comfort in the modern amenities amidst the serene setting.
Once you arrive at Lake Nicaragua, the Mukul team will whisk you away by the Pellas family’s private boat for a tour of Lake Nicaragua’s 365 volcanic islands, called the Granada Isletas, which date back to the lake’s formation as part of the Volcán Mombacho. Take your pick of a myriad of activities at the lake house, from lounging next to the swimming pool to waterskiing, fishing and kayaking. No matter how you choose to spend the day, opt for a lakeside picnic in the tranquil setting, replete with views of colonial Granada and the verdant Nicaraguan jungle. At the end of the day, Mukul will deliver you back to the property grounds for an elegant evening and a private barefoot dinner overlooking the ethereal Nicaraguan sunset.
