Ometepe is a volcanic island in the middle of the big lake in Nica. There are actually 2 volcanos on it and it is a really pretty place. Hiked up a Volcan Concepcion with 2 Canadians and a guide who spent a few years in Las Vegas during the civil war as his father was a sniper in the Sadinistas, but didnt survive the war. On the walk up we saw howler monkeys, white faced monkeys (apparently got their from pirate ships back in the day, these are the monkeys on pirates of the carib), hawks and other fauna.

Next day was for kayaking near Merida which was good.
