Ometepe

January 29th 2014
  • Once a prowling ground for Spanish pirates, Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua is home to not one, but two volcanoes and proudly boasts to being the largest volcanic island inside a fresh water lake in the world.

    With travellers few and far between, the island offers a genuine chance to escape the usual, with long stretching beaches, unusual wildlife and vast amounts of historical sites dating back to 2000 B.C. lying in wait for those who venture to it.

    With a small airport built, but not yet in use, the island will soon be easier to reach than ever before, so if you’re looking to experience the true Nicaraguan lifestyle, now is the time to go.
