Rarely does a property in Laguna de Apoyo as special as Las Rocas Eco Arqueologico come to the market. Sitting on almost an acre of lakefront land, Las Rocas consists of two homes and a group of culturally significant Petroglyphic rocks.
The primary home sits right at the base of the Laguna de Apoyo lake and provides absolutely breathtaking views from every inch inside and from the expansive outside patio area. The house is a spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home that has been successfully used on the Airbnb market. You are just steps to the lake where you can enjoy the warm mineral waters by taking a dip, kayaking, or lounding on the property’s wooden dock.
There is a second large house that sits further back on the property. Spacious in size, the 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom is currently being used as a caretaker’s home but with a little renovation it could be a real show stopper.
Most uniquely, Las Rocas Eco Arquelogioco houses three large boulders with Pre-Colombian Petroglyph etchings. These century old relics stem from the indigenous community that populated the area but was largely erradicated by the Spanish conquest. The messages on these rocks have not been deciphered, but the powerful carved images on petrophlyphic rocks are truly extraordinary.
This is a spectacular location in a natural reserve that is truly one of the treasures of Nicaragua, but provides the conveniences of the city as both the towns of Colonial Granada and Masaya are just a half an hour away.
