Isla de Ometepe

4.1
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. Isla de Ometepe is in Rivas Department. Our Nicaragua trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Isla de Ometepe and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
