Saturday on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua

After some rest and getting acquainted with our immediate surroundings, Saturday was for going to town. We had a great breakfast and met a new friend who loves to go biking, so it didn’t take us any time to make plans to go riding together. Then, we walked around town a little so I know where to find anything I need.

Every day I seem to come back with a lot of pictures. There is always something new, interesting, beautiful, or all of the above. Maybe a time will come when I have “seen it all” but I don’t see that happening while we are here, so there will be more photos coming!

    We’ve talked about this before, but when I look at the shacks there, and some of the primitive habitations in the mountains here in Chiriqui, I can’t help but think that the people living in them are better off, by far, than the homeless back in the States.

    Thanks so much for the side trip, so to speak, from Panama, I’m sure I speak for almost all of your followers, we are all excited about your next three weeks of your blog. I’ve Googled Maps for the island you are one, looks like there are two Volcanoes.

    So, who’s watching for the snakes around your David home…LOL


    • Yes, one dormant volcano and one active, which I understand can put out an occasional puff of smoke.
      Oh dear, the snakes. It’s so quiet at the house that they have probably all moved in!


  4. Kris, I hope you love your time there! Mark and i spent a month there in March of 2012, and it was an Adventure! The house we rented ( for 170 a month) wasn’t as nicely equipped as Debbie’s , so we didnt have water much – maybe 50% of the time. But, were lucky to be able to meet Debbie and Ron ( and were mortified a week later when we saw Ron in managua and didn’t recognize him!), enjoyed Ojo de Aquq ( I would have gone daily if it were closer), and loved our visit to a resort on the other side of the island. We also had a couple of memorable escapades with a rented bike and missing the last bus from the other side of the island. Phew. It’s not David, thats for sure, but there’s plenty to do! I’m looking forward to reading about your time there!


    • No, it isn’t David but I am trying to decide if I miss the shopping center and the traffic and all the city stuff. So far that would be a definite no. We just rented bikes yesterday so we will be exploring and Ojo de Agua is high on the list. We love Deb and Ron’s house, great place for a home base! Thanks for stopping by and I hope all is well with you 🙂

    While in Cambutal (Panama) on our way to and from Isla Canas, we drove over Ojo de Agua! Funny to ready you would be exploring this water in Nicaragua! Love reading about your adventures there!

    Yes, in Panama! If you ever want to fish and see this part of Panama (Cambutal), I will connect you and Joel with very lovely friends! And we are in Boquete Oct 20th…perhaps we can meet up that week?
