Awesome! We had a driver, so we chose to drive up to the 2 km rock, ad walk from there. It was about a 45 minute walk - mostly straight up to the top. The trail is a little rugged, and we did it in flip flops. We would definately recomend tennies instead. We took a picknic lunch with us and enjoyed lunch and taking a refreshing dip in the cool water. We were a group of nine - kids ages 10 to 17, and they all thought it was great too!

We went to San Ramon waterfall and although it was one of the hardest hikes we've ever done it was well worth it. The 3km hike to the waterfall feels double that because you are mainly going uphill the entire time but we still had a blast and felt great because we accomplished it. Once you reach the waterfall it feels like heaven, pictures do not do justice for this place, the waterfall is so high in person and so beautiful to look at. I recommend to jump in because it feels amazing and to go here if you are on Ometepe Island.

A few different sources recommended this trail for a hike and a swim. We chose to ride horses most of the way up to the falls, with just a short hike at the end (you can arrange horses at a few places in Merida.) The waterfall is very high and quite nice, but the pool at the bottom isn't large enough to swim in. I wouldn't bother bringing a swimsuit - just plan to wash your face and hands in the cool water. It's a good walk from Merida to the entrance (about 45min), so keep that in mind if you are planning to hike as well - leave a bit more time for yourself than the locals will tell you.

Hacienda Merida, where I was staying when I visited, highly recommended by the way, can rent you bikes for the 2.25 mile ride to the entrance or even set you up with horse rentals. The walk is very enjoyable too and takes you past local homes and also a wonderful place to have lunch on the way back called Finca Mystica.

From the entrance, Omotepe Biologica' Estacion noticable by the bright yellow gate on the left hand side, pay the 60 cordoba ($3) fee and head on up. The signs say 3k to the falls but its a bit more. The first section is on gravel road through fruit trees and lava rocks. Once you get to the parking lot you will see the hydro-electric building and the trail on the right leading into the jungle. You eventually work your way across a streambed and up a steep climb at the end till you reach the falls. 130 meters high. Take a dip!
