Unable to reach ferry-company San Jorge - Ometepe

We are trying te make reservations for the ferry san jorge - ometepe. We tried the form on their website first, then their general e-mailaddress, then the e-mailaddress of their general manager... But no replies after 3 weeks of trying. Does anybody know if something is wrong with the ferrycompany?

There is nothing worng with the ferry company but for you to feel better you do not need reservations for the ferry as passenger but of your are crossing a vehicle a reservation needs to be made at least one week before your trip.

We're bringing the car, that's why I want to make reservations. They still haven't replied to all my e-mails.

This's the new # 2278.8190 and 2278.8180

They just made 8 digit in Nicaragua. you have to add #2 in the lines phones and #8 in the cells.

Sorry, i missed a # from the USA is 011.505 + Number.....505 is the Nicaraguan code, just find out the # you dial when you call from the Netherlands to another country.

As you can see, 011 is the USA.

Everybody, thanks for your help! I tried everything now including the phone but it just won't work! Nobody answers the phone, the email or the reservation form.

I guess we'll just have to go there and find out if there's any space left for our car. We travel to Ometepe on a sunday, so maybe there'll be less traffic then on a weekday? Let's just hope so!
