Laguna de Apoyo is a water-filled volcanic caldera, formed 23,000 years ago, along the Ring of Fire in Nicaragua. A 180-meter deep lake, more than four kilometers in diameter, contains slightly salty water, always warm (83 degrees Fahrenheit) and clear. There are several species of fish in the lake, some of which are subjects of intense academic study. To date, six fish species have been discovered which only inhabit this lake. There are also crabs, vegetation, and thermal vents which all provide excellent underwater adventures for the SCUBA diver.
