My friend and I consulted Tripadviser when making the decision about where to stay/eat and ended up a Yogi's, which was lovely but they didn't have restaurant so we ventured out. Lured in by the wonderful colours and good-vibes music, we wandered into HC. We were both on a fresh healthy eating buzz so were hoping to grab a healthy lunch. On our first inspection of the menu, we decided we should probably check out other places but were coaxed back by the owner - who asked us what we would love to eat. Without hesitation we both said "curry"? The owner is also a chef, and a very good chef too! We relaxed and chatted to customers and surfed on their wifi and just enjoyed what the place had to offer. The curry was magnificent! The organic produce sourced locally from the mineral rich soils of Ometepe - we washed it down with passion fruit and ginger juices which were amazing! We hung out for the night and next day moved in (dorms only $4) as it was low season. All I can say is we slept and ate well during our stay - great value for money. We went to other parts of the island with the intention of staying but ended up returning as the quality of places got worse and more expensive. I would recommend this place as a great base for a stay on Ometepe. It's a few mins walk from the harbour and bus terminus. You can also rent bikes for $5 a day.
