Beaches, Islands & Waterfronts
Not just the ferry terminal for hourly boats from the mainland, Moyogalpa is the nerve center for Ometepe's nascent tourist industry, with several hotels and restaurants, and the fastest Internet on the island...
Neighbourhoods & Villages

Lakes, Rivers & Waterfalls
One of Ometepe's classic hikes is to San Ramón waterfall. This excellent four-hour trek follows a steep, clearly marked trail to the mossy, 40m (131ft) waterfall that you see on all the postcards...
This stunning 40m waterfall is one of the jewels of the island. The trail begins at the Estación Biológica de Ometepe...
Museums & Galleries
The past meets the future…well, the present, anyway, at this combination internet cafe and family-operated museum...

Close to Altagracia, this island, basically a plantain finca (farm) gone feral, is rarely visited despite being a fantastic place for bird-watching...
A place to see some of the finest remaining ancient excavated statues on Ometepe is beside the Altagracia church, close to the parque central, where a handful of softly eroding monoliths still stand sentry.
