“Nice authentic beach restaurant in front of Volcano Concepcion (Ometepe)”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Nice little beach restaurant with beautiful view on the Lake Nicaragua and the Volcano Concepcion. The menue is simple but ok. We got fresh fish from the lake (the name started with a "t"). The side dish was typical Nicaraguan food - banana and rice. Overall a very nice and attractive place for backpackers and guests who prefer a seducted place away from touristic noise.

“Kayak and Guide”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We highly recommend the guided tour through the wetlands. We elected to pay extra for a motorboat to transport us and the kayaks there and back and were very glad that we did as it avoided what would have been a 3 hour paddle back to Caballito's in a stiff late afternoon half gale. The guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and obviously loves and respects his island very much.

“Kayak through the lagoon”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We hired a guide and double kayak here to explore the river/lagoon on Ometepe It was about a 3 hour trip total. Our guide was a young man who grew up on the island and was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. We saw beautiful birds, turtles, tilapia, and some monkeys from a distance. The water on the lake was pretty rough, so paddling was a challenge, but once we got the the river it was calm. Great way to see the lake and the island.

“Basic but pretty good”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

The menu here is the same as elsewhere. We all got fried fish and it was good. We did, however, feel a little weird when we got there for a kayak tour and the guy asked us to put in an order for lunch for when we got back - kind of like it wasn't an option, but it wasn't included, either. It was a decent value, though, and the food was good enough, so it's all good.
