Hiking in Laguna de Apoyo

When guests come to the lake wanting to experience the jungle, I always send them to our favorite hiking trail.  The trail is just outside of the Paradiso Hostel gate and down the road past the elementary school, on the left hand side.

For most locals, the trail is simply a scenic shortcut to the main road above the crater, but to tourists it is a pleasant hike that provides them with beautiful overlooking views of the lake, insane tree formations and a variety of animals and critters that have all of the room necessary to build a comfortable home.

When I go on the trail I always look for other small secret trails that are off the beaten path and therefore could give me a different experience. On these smaller random wild trails, there are battles of plant vs. plant attempting to reach sunlight up to the sky,

and colorful birds everywhere singing back and forth to each other.

I love going on the hike because there is no final destination–quite similar to life.  It is all about getting to the trail you want and then finding your own path to explore.

Happy Friday folks, have a wonderful weekend–perhaps go out and find a hidden trail somewhere and go exploring. It’s fun getting lost and finding your own way sometimes. Cheers!

    So much blue and green! I hiked in a jungle mountain in the Philippines and of my favorite parts was exploring all the creepy crawlies. Palm-sized snails, shiny black beetles, and Timon-and-Pumba-eque grub.
