OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN OMETEPE ISLAND

BIKE RIDING

There are numerous trails of varying difficulty that run through the island. The lower flanks are rich farming land with traditional village life which gives way to thick jungle as you gain height. You can swim in the lake from several of the islands beaches.

ISLAND TOUR

A guided 4×4 tour of the island to view traditional daily life, take in some superb views and get an overview of this unique island. There are numerous places of interest such as Charco Verde lagoon, protected forest reserves and curious pre-Columbian petroglyphs carved into ancient stones

CONCEPCION TREK

This trek is slightly less strenuous but still demanding and rewarding. On the way to the summit crater lake you pass through the different eco-systems of tropical wet and dry forest with an impressive and ever present variety of flora and fauna. The summit is covered in one of Nicaragua’s last remaining areas of cloud forest.
