Isla de Ometepe

4.1
Fountains · Islands · Volcanos
Isla de Ometepe may be small in size, but it boasts two large volcanoes that dominate its landscape and influence the local lifestyle. A tour of Isla de Ometepe reveals a narrow strip of land joining the two volcanoes and creating a shape resembling an oversized hourglass or peanut. The island's twin peaks continue to capture the imagination of photographers and the few avid history buffs that make it this far into Nicaragua. Mark Twain wrote about this place in "Travels with Mr Brown," and you can see what all the fuss is about by exploring the island's archaeological sites, which hide nearly 1,700 ancient petroglyphs. In the build up to your vacation in Isla de Ometepe, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Nicaragua trip planning website.
