Ojo de Agua, Isla de Ometepe

Cool off at Ojo de Agua, a natural spring. Dip into the clear, cool water, brought to the spring by an underground river that has been purified by the nearby volcano. The soft, mineralized water offers an inviting moment of respite from the heat of the area, and gets constantly renewed and replenished by the spring. Separated into two main pools, the springs have seen an upswing in popularity with locals and tourists alike, drawing significant crowds on weekends and holidays. Sit on one of the deck chairs and relax under the shade of the umbrellas, treating yourself to some fresh coconut from the onsite vendors. Put Ojo de Agua at the forefront of your travel plans using our Isla de Ometepe road trip site .

  • This is such a neat place. It is mostly clean if you go on an uncrowded day. We went on a Tuesday in June. Don't even try to go on Holy Week or around Christmas. Any dirty places come from other guest...  more »

  • Unfortunately, in my opinion is a waste of money. Better poplywac for free in a lake with an amazing cycle maria jesus especially about West of the Sun. Here you pay and really this is nothing unique drinks too expensive.

  • Very beautiful and clear water. Perfect to relax, bath and calm down. You can buy alcoholic drinks such as coconuts. Just the prices for entrance and drinks is high. Before the conflicts of president Ortega and the civil population it was very touristic.
  • Clean and well maintained, though it was incredibly crowded while we were there. The water temperature is nice, and there are rope swings and slack lines for the more adventurous. Food and drinks available on site.
  • Definitely go there! Entry is c$ 154 for foreigners ($5). Refreshing turquoise water. Good for swimming. There’s even a Tarzan swing if you dare. You can order food and drinks to your pool chair. A bit pricey but quite good and convenient. It’s a good place to escape a hot day.
  • Cool place to relax in after a long day of traveling. The water temperature is excellent and the place itself is very clean and organized. They also have food and drinks that are very reasonably priced and are pretty good.
  • After hiking the volcano, this is the best possible thing to do. Amazingly clean, warm water... Really good food and drinks and surprisingly cheap considering it's a totally captive clientele.
