Starting early in the morning we will reach the small dock of San Jorge, where we take the ferry to navigate through the fresh waters of Lake Nicaragua that became well known when French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau identified freshwater bull sharks.
Our first destination is the Numismatic & Pre-Columbian Museum, where we will learn about the culture of the different ethnic groups or tribes that inhabited the island of Ometepe, through its ceramics and tools for their survival. We will be passing through different rural villages to reach the natural reserve of Charco Verde. An hour light trek through this reserve will lead us to explore tropical wonders such as birds, mammals, reptiles, plants, breathtaking landscapes and the famous “Charco Verde”, a natural little lake within the reserve surrounded by lush vegetation. Then we will continue our trip to “Playa Santo Domingo” where we will enjoy our delicious lunch in one of the restaurants by the shores of Lake Nicaragua, here you can also have a chance for a refreshing swim.
After a succulent meal our exciting journey continues to the base of Maderas Volcano, an impressive cloud forest mountain located in the southwest of the island. Here we will explore one of the farms where several interesting petroglyphs are found, a strong evidence of Middle American cultures that developed in this part of the world. At the same time we will be able to learn about the different type of tropical fruit trees. A quick drive back to Moyogalpa to take the ferry back to the mainland and the beautiful Colonial Granada.
