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.

  • Very beautiful. Go in the morning to be quiet, avoid the crowds and enjoy the site! Those who attended the afternoon said we have been disappointed with the place because too many tourists. The place was clean. Walk fun to go around.

  • 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.
  • I would highly suggest going later in the day. It's much more quiet and relaxing we found. Great place to cool off after a hot day!
  • Magic place. You can easily spend the day there. Less crowded in the morning and noon.
  • Awesome open place to relax and cool off. There is a slack-line, coconuts with rum, and a swing rope. Couldn't ask for more.
  • Nice place. Smaller than I thought. More like a pool instead of a natural spring. But nice place with fine food and drinks. Good to hang out for a chill day on ometepe
