Ometepe is the largest volcanic lake island in the world. The island formed by two adjoining volcanoes has become a widely popular tourist destination for its rich biodiversity, plethora of nature activities and relaxed vibe. From guided horseback riding and hiking to kayaking and swimming in natural springs, there’s no shortage of things to do on this island. The volcano of Maderas is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Condé Nast Traveller named Ometepe a “tropical treasure”.
From the port in San Jorge, it’s only a 30 minute drive to the Costa Rican border or the nearby beaches on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast beaches. It’s only an hour to Granada and a 1 ½ hours drive to Managua.
The island of Ometepe has a surprising amount of infrastructure and modern conveniences in place including banks, hospitals, clinics, vet clinics, a post office, schools, a supermarket and a Regional airport (20 minute flight from Managua and San Carlos) with flights from Costa Rica coming soon.
Investors looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination, rich agricultural land or lakefront property with plenty of peace and quiet will be well rewarded here.
