Lake Nicaragua is a big freshwaterlake (8260 sq km) with many saltwater fishes. In no other lake in the world can you find saltwater species like the sawtooth fish and sharkes. They came from the sea up the river San Juan and have adopted to the freshwater environment.
In the lake there are three different archipelagos. In the southeast there are the islands of Solentiname with a special school of painting.
On the picture you can see the big island Ometepe with the vulcanos Concepción and Maderas.
