Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you look for a reliable and cheap taxi on the island ometepe, I can recommend you Gerald Tijerino. I traveled together with three friends. We paid 5 dollars each for drives that took about 30-40 minutes. He also offers scooter rentals for 24h at a rate of 15 dollars. Motorbikes are avaible at 20 dollars for 24 hours. Gerald usually replied within minutes when communicating over WhatsApp and was always very kind and helpful.

Ometepe is really a great place. It is remote and more rural feeling than Granada or San Juan Del Sur but in a good way. It has more of a small town vibe. A little slower pace with very kind and friendly people. It's an island vibe for sure and there's very little in the way of commerce going on. The scenery is gorgeous as well with a handful of easily accessed activities and things to do. I'm glad we went and I'm sure anyone else going would feel the same.

Our son visited the Island a few years ago and highly recommended it to us. We finally made it there and spent twelve days roaming around hanging out with locals. The island is very friendly and if you stay more than a few days you will make lots of Nico friends. The entire island has a laid back atmosphere set against stunning beauty and gorgeous beaches. We enjoyed the towns as much as the more rural areas. We hiked to the top of a volcano, soaked in a beautiful mineral pool and walked beautiful beaches. You can see why we think it’s a little corner of paradise!Would love to go back and spend more time.

You can't really say you have visited Nicaragua without going to ometepe. I went to cascada san Ramón and hiked volcano Concepción. I think that three nights and three days is the ideal, or more if you like a more relaxing, laid-back lifestyle.
