Bienvenidos!!! If you find yourself in Nicaragua you must make time for a trip to Ometepe Island. It is a gem, located in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, it is only accessible by ferry, and once you arrive you find yourself in true Nicaraguan country. Less tourists, more locals (including cows, and horses), petroglyphs, volcanoes, and natural springs. Also, Lake Nicaragua is the only lake in the world that is home to fresh water bull sharks! Don’t worry, the lake is super shallow for a mile out so swimming is safe 🙂 If you enjoy hiking, there is an amazing trail that runs along the lake on your right with volcanic vistas on your left, and instead of passing people you will walk beneath Howler monkeys!
