If you make it to Ometepe, you will NOT be disappointed. Only a 1hr boat ride from San Jorge near Rivas. Cheap taxis and great places to stay. Don't worry if you can't figure out where to stay in advance. Just show up and let it happen. We are a family of 5 and ended up at Hotel Finca Venecia. Very good value for the price. My 8 year old son and I hiked up and down Volcán Conception. It was an unforgettable day. You MUST hike in Ometepe. Birds, butterflies, monkeys, crazy colorful beetles up on the volcano. It's like another world. I was waiting to be chased by a velociraptor.

The island is accessible via ferry or twice a week flight from Managua. It contains two volcanoes and a number of small towns, as well as many tourist accommodations. We stayed at Finca Montania Sagradia near Merida, which is pretty remote, We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, horseback riding, good accommodations and food, visiting a waterfall and a water hole, renting a dirt bike to tour the island, and meeting many other tourists from around the globe. It was a great experience and I highly recommend it.

Charming and peaceful island off the grid. This is just a very special laid back place. We stayed on Santa Domingo beach and the experience was very relaxing. This is the type of place you go and enjoy just sipping coffee and watching the sunsets. The Oyo de Acqua was a nice spot to spend a few hours.

Spend at least a day at Ometepe - better yet stay overnight.
Be sure to check out Ojo de Aquas. Very easy to get there via the various ferry services available. We booked a tour on the mainland side and once in Ometepe, local guide/driver Miguel took great care of us - gracias Miguel!
