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.

Ometepe Island is basically two volcanoes joined by a stretch of land. There is a road that goes around each of the volcanoes although it is unpaved and rough at the south end. There are regular local buses that travel on schedule. You can rent scooters and motorcycles quite reasonably. At this time, they have been suffering from the decline in tourism since the unrest in 2018 so there are a lot of places that are cheap and a lot that look closed. Both volcanoes can be climbed although Conception is hard and almost always in clouds at the top. You really should have a guide for both. Conception is active so there is steam rising from it in places. There is a stretch of beach close to Santa Cruz but it isn't very wide, has vegetation washed up and isn't maintained at this time. The best beach is a small beach at Playa Mango near Merida. It has a great view of the volcano, a swing over the water and good food. Other things to see are the falls at San Ramon, Ojo de Agua or just tour around the island.
