The meeting point of the Rivers Grande and Tapasle, where the paraprecipitate waters fuse together in a vacuum forming the 6-metre high jump.
Just 4 kilometres from the town centre, in the region of El Corozo, we find what is known as the "Corozo wall".
There are several theories about the origin of this rock formation of more than 3 kilometers in diameter.
There are those who say it is due to the impact of a meteorite (aerolite) and other much more reliable versions say it is of volcanic origin.
On the road to Boaco, 12 kilometers from Muy Muy, we find the unknown Olama Canyon.
The Olama River, which rises at the top of Cerro Cumaica, has made its way through the rocks of volcanic origin throughout history.
The river runs its course between cliffs, waterfalls, some over 5 meters high and pools that invite us to cool down on a hot summer day.
