Set in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, the world’s 19th largest lake, Ometepe Island is an escape from the stress of the modern world. Its most noticeable feature: the two volcanoes, one active and one extinct, that loom above all.
Island residents live a simple life of farming and fishing. There is no large-scale development and limited numbers of tourists make their way there for horseback riding, trekking in the jungle, eco-tours, and learning sustainable farming practices. You do find some expats on Ometepe, running restaurants or hostels…or farming. It’s still a relatively undiscovered destination.
