The largest freshwater lake in Nicaragua with an abundance of wildlife and activities

Isla de Ometepe - Once believed to be the promised land by Aztec explorers, Isla de Ometepe consists of two towering volcanic cones emerging from the waters of western Lake Nicaragua.

The active Volcán Concepción (1,610 m) dominates the landscape, complemented by the dormant Volcán Maderas (1,394m), whose last eruption occurred approximately 800 years ago.

Inhabited for thousands of years due to its fertile volcanic soils, Ometepe bears the marks of its rich history, with archaeological sites scattered across the island. Travelers are drawn to the freshwater sandy beaches like Playa Santo Domingo, pristine waters, diverse wildlife, and breathtaking scenery, featuring lush forests, cascading waterfalls, and natural springs in the island's heart. Ometepe stands as a hidden gem in Nicaragua, captivating with its beauty, making it a paradise for hikers, climbers, bikers, and nature enthusiast and an essential destination for those intrigued by culture and archaeology.

Isletas de Granada – Situated by the shore of Lake Nicaragua, Las Isletas emerge as a captivating natural wonder shaped by a prehistoric eruption from the nearby Mombacho Volcano. This archipelago, comprising 365 small islands encircling the Asese peninsula, presents a mosaic of quaint fishing communities, exquisite private homes, and inviting resorts and eco-lodges. The archipelago's remarkable flora and fauna come to life, offering a splendid spectacle best enjoyed from a private deck, aboard a motorboat, or by leisurely kayaking through the serene waters surrounding the islands. Las Isletas stand as one of Nicaragua's most alluring natural gems.
