Island Paradise In The Middle Of Nicaragua
Hop on a short ferry ride from the shores of Lake Nicaragua, Central America’s largest lake, and head to Ometepe, an island formed by two giant volcanoes and one of Nicaragua’s most well-known, but not necessarily most-visited spots (also rumored to be gunning for the 74th spot on the seven natural wonders of the world — yeah doesn’t make much sense does it?).
Inhabited by monkeys, various exotic birds, and probably way too many pesky insects; and with hiking, swimming, kayaking, and the many charming towns all around the perimeter, there’s plenty to see and do in your time spent between swatting away at mosquitoes.
