¡Nicaragua, a lot to discover!
Near Rivas is the “Puerto de San Jorge”, a small fishermen village where you take a boat ride to “Isla de Ometepe”. This is one of the biggest lacustrine islands of the world and is famous for its two majestic volcanoes: the “Concepción” (1,610 m) and the “Maderas” (1,340 m) which has a beautiful crater lagoon on its top and waterfalls on its slopes. Legend has it, that this spot is the Promised Land of the “Olmecas” immigrants who descended from México during the ninth century. It is a paradise for watersports, fishing, bird watching and hiking.
Ometepe is also famous for its rock art and Indian Pre-Columbian statuaries. As Tahiti, Ometepe has an eight shape. Enjoy the equestrian rally on November and the Alcalá Party on October.
