We are off the beaten track, but located in the best part of the island for all your adventure ( and non-adventure ) activities :
From Finca Mystica you can:
Hike to the avatar like cloud forest Maderas Volcano, starting from our private nature trail !
$30 per guide up to 3 people, or $10 per person 4 or more. It is a strenuous 6-8 hour hike. There is a crater lake view at the top, (if your lucky) or you can hike down another 45 minutes to take a dip if your very adventurous. You will see beautiful views of volcano conception along the way, as well as wildlife and exotic plantlife. We can provide packed lunches and snacks for you to enjoy at the top.
San Ramon waterfall!
From Finca Mystica you can hike to the impressive 90 meter dropping waterfall of San Ramon. This is a moderate 3-5 hour hike from our hotel. Good sneakers or hiking shoes are highly recommended for this hike. The last kilometer can be a bit rocky, but when you reach the waterfall you will be happy to feel the cool mist blowing from the falls, or take a dip if you would like. If you are not up for a big hike, many of our guest enjoy taking horses up to the last kilometer, where you have to hike the rest of the way. It take about 3-4 hours on horses roundtrip from our lodge.
Thier is a $3 entrance fee to get into the waterfall at the entrance gate.
Horses are $7/ hour per person with guide.
Kayaking to the Rio Istian is one of Ometepe's highlights, if you are a nature lover. It is a beautiful estuary where you can spot monkeys, caimans, turtles and hundreds of different bird species tucked between both volcanoes. Its a stunning view on a clear day. There are a few options for kayaking. You can walk to Caballitos de Mar (about 35 minutes through town) or have a taxi boat pick you up at the bottom of Finca Mysticas road for $30 round trip. The more people to share the boat taxi the better! The cost of the tour through the rio with some of the best (bilingual) guides on the island is $25 per person for 1 or 2 people, $20 for 3 or more. This tour takes 3 to 4 hours . If you are just looking to kayak around in the lake close by, there is a hostel near us that rents kayaks for $5/hour per person.
Cruise the island by motorbike or bicycle!
If you are an experienced rider, motorcycles are a great way to take a day tour of the island. You can enjoy a day at the natural swimming hole (Ojo de Agua)! Get a great lunch in Balgue, see petroglyphs, coffee plantations, and more. The cost of the motorcycle is $35 for the day! You can also rent some "nica" bicycles and cruise the bumpy roads to the Ojo de Agua, petroglyphs, or around our friendly village. Bicycle rentals are
$2 per hour or $10 for the whole day from our neighbors.
