The beauty about The Monkey Hut is that – despite its location in a well-kept natural reserve – it is really very close to three of Nicaragua's main cities. A half-hour drive from Managua, a 15-minute drive from Masaya or Granada makes the Monkey Hut the most accessible paradise in Nicaragua!

BY BUS/TAXI/SHUTTLE


From Managua: Take any (micro)bus headed for Granada and ask the driver to let you off at the entrance to the Laguna de Apoyo. From there you can either take a taxi, try to hitch-hike or wait for a bus. Alternatively, you can take the microbus all the way into Granada and come to the Laguna via the transport or shuttle service organized by various hotels or tour operators in Granada. See below ("From Granada") for more details.

From Masaya: The Masaya Market parking lot is also the Masaya bus station. Jump on the Laguna de Apoyo bus and it will take you straight to The Monkey Hut (the bus departs from Masaya at 9:30am and 3:30pm)

From Granada: Take any (micro)bus headed for Masaya or Managua and ask the driver to let you off at the entrance to the Laguna de Apoyo. From there you can either take a taxi, try to hitch-hike or wait for a bus.

There are also several hotels and tour operators in Granada offering regular transport services (both for day visitors, and overnight guests) to The Monkey Hut or to the Apoyo Lagoon, amongst whom Nicaragua Adventures-Granada (e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; telephone: (+505) 2552-8461 / (+505) 8988-8127) and Abdalah Tours Granada (telephone: (+505) 2552-8672). Please check whether their fee also covers the day entrance fee to The Monkey Hut or only transport (the day entry fee to The Monkey Hut is $6 plus 15% sales tax; this fee includes the use of all our facilities). Some hotels or tour operators include our entrance fee in a total package price, the price of others only includes transport. Please check this in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.
