“La Omaja is great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2007

We went to Ometepe for the first time and are very happy that we chose La Omaja. Jamie is a great host. We arranged to have him collect us at the ferry landing for the partly smooth, partly bumpy ride to La Omaja. It was easy arranging details by e-mail and confirming by phone from Granada the day before we arrived.

Choosing one word for La Omaja would be "peaceful." The rooms are spare but comfortable. The food is fantastic (excellent fish) and the beer cold (liter Victorias!). The views are great. Conception's constantly changing peak is a quick glance across the lake while Maderas looms behind. The night sky is amazing. We could walk by starlight.

Jamie will also arrange excursions. We chose the waterfall hike. There is also a great pebbly beach a seven minute walk away. It's a nice swim at sunset with a clear view to the west. Jamie is also a wealth of knowledge for local history and goings on.

La Omaja and Ometepe were the highlight of our short Nicaragua trip. We will be returning.

Thank you and we hope you do return. The fish here is great because it is fresh from the lake, unfortunately it is not always available 'cause we only buy a few fish each day from the local fisherman to make sure we are serving you truly fresh fish.
