From the moment I emailed to inquire about lodging, Karen and Roy couldn't have been anymore accommodating. They responded promptly and even arranged a taxi for me from Ometepe to Empalme.
Once I arrived, they greeted me with a cold beer, a quick tour of the place (first-rate cabins) and an even quicker trip down to the nearest beach. From there, Roy introduced me to their awesome Aussie neighbors.
Roy and Karen were always asking how they could make the trip better. Roy was more than willing to drive the guests to a nearby beach when needed, play cards or just talk until the lights go out. Karen cooked up a great breakfast and dinner, and they both made sure all the guests felt included.
Overall, it's a beautiful part of the world and Roy and Karen's Empalme only makes it more special.
I highly recommend the Empalme.
