Ometepe, recently designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, is an island formed by two volcanoes in the Lake of Nicaragua. I enjoyed my two days there climbing (the inactive) volcano and biking/hiking to a nice waterfall. The island’s quiet, relaxed vibe made it one of my favorite places in Nicaragua. The richness of Ometepe’s volcanic soil makes for famous rice and beans, and the gallopinto I had there did not disappoint.
