I agree with the other reviews that this is a wonderful experience. I also was very glad we chose the 3 km boat ride to the start of the river towing the kayaks behind. At around 7:30 in the morning it was fun to ride...More

We chose the motor boat extra to ride us to the river entrance and it was a great and wise decision. We were then fresh to kayak the beautiful Rio Istiam and enjoy it’s marvelous beauty. Unfortunately we couldn’t see monkeys or caymans but Emerson,...More

Went here in May for the Kayaking - it was one of the best things I've done on Ometepe! After paddling on the big lake you reach the small river and it gets quiet. Suddenly you're surrounded by birds, caimans are peeking out of the...More

If you are on Ometepe, definitely take a minute to go out and kayak the wetlands between the two volcanoes. The pavement stops shortly after Santa Cruz and the road is real rough out to Merida. The Caballero Del Mar is the second Kayak outfit...More

We did a family kayaking trip. The set-up was friendly and safe. The kayaks were fine, perched by the lake - like a windy sea beachfront. We had the kayaks towed by motorboat to the entrance of the Istian estuary. Once there, our paddling was...More
