Ometepe Island & Morgan’s Rock
Volcano, Tropical Forest and Beach Adventure
7 days – 6 nights
Who said the beach had to be boring? Or that dense tropical forest and towering volcanoes can’t include a daily dose of sand and warm water? Ometepe Island is Nicaragua’s fresh-water Tahiti, made up of two volcanoes rising up out of a warm tropical lake teaming with exotic fish. Both of the island’s tropical forest-wrapped volcanoes are great for hiking and nature watching, while Ometepe best beach, Santo Domingo is ideal for horseback riding or just chilling. Morgan’s Rock is a private nature reserve on the Pacific Coast, a pristine beach backed by more than 3,000 acres of tropical forest reserve. The warm Pacific Ocean will call most to the sand daily, but tropical forest hiking is also on tap. This Nicaragua beach adventure is the best way to stay waterfront – without getting water-logged.
