Ometepe Island

Ometepe Island

An unspoilt little gem of an island, basking under Nicaragua’s blue skies in the middle of the world’s largest freshwater lake, Ometepe is many a traveller’s highlight of the entire region. Try not being relaxed here: a pair of volcanoes spears the air, their fertile slopes home to walks through lush forests teeming with buzzing birdlife, while the island’s shores are lined with beaches perfect for a dip and a flop. The only problem you have on Ometepe is trying to resist the urge to tear up the travel itinerary and go native.
