Well worth the Trek Rented a Quad to-get there much cheaper than Booking a Tour. Great Photo opp of the 2 Volcano’s. Easy to find

Punta Jesus Maria is a great place to watch the sunset while on Ometepe. That is undeniable. However, there are some things you really need to know. Many of the pictures that show a large beach were taken during a historic drought in Nicaragua. The...More

We went by bicycle to the this point view.  It was really beautiful but because of the tide it was less beautiful. It cost 1$ for entrance. You can buy cold drink or beer. There is no much to do. Just watch the sunset and...More
