Things To Note
Flexible check-in and check-out times by pre-arrangement. Ometepe Island is a unique island filled with indigenous hard working people dedicated to agriculture & tourism. They carved many statues and petroglyphs which can still be seen in sitio. Ferries/boats depart from San Jorge port near Rivas to the island ports. Also there is a new airport with twice weekly flights from Managua to Moyogalpa via Air Costena. The main roads around the island are nearly all paved and definitely improved. Some tourists only plan a few days on the island but that is not enough to enjoy the island pace of life.
