Best Ometepe Hotels – Charco Verde

Charco Verde Hotel is located six miles from Moyogalpa, the main port city on the island of Ometepe.  The name Charco Verde comes from the green lagoon that is a short walk from the hotel cabins.  The hotel is next to a beautiful ecological reserve that includes the Green Lagoon.

Hiking around the Green Lagoon provides some great views of the island, especially up on some of the lookouts where one can have a three hundred sixty degree view of your surroundings.  The hotel can offer a guided hike of the lagoon and the nearby area where you can learn about the legends and myths that center around this green lagoon.  On this short hike, one can expect to possibly see howler monkeys, armadillos, rabbits, owls, black herons and much more.

Best of Ometepe WildlifeGuests staying in the hotel have their own cabin that is equipped with air conditioning, king size beds, a private terraceand hammocks.  The hotel is in a unique location, making guests feel as though they are in the middle of the jungle This is much more evident in the evening with all the noise that the night wildlife makes.  Guests can hear it all from the terrace of their cabin.  In addition to the cozy accommodations the hotel also has a restaurant on site where guests can enjoy a nice meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Their specialty is the creole fish.  They say that, if you try it, you will definitely want to come back to Ometepe.

Right outside the doors to the cabin is Lake Nicaragua where guests can enjoy a nice relaxing dip in the water in El Bancon beach.  Guest can also rent kayaks to float around the waters of the lake.  There is another smaller island nearby which guests can kayak to and do a little exploring of their own.  There are also bikes to rent for those who want to go visit other parts of the island.

Best of Ometepe HotelsCharco Verde is definitely a unique place to stay.  I would compare the hotel facilities similar to what you would find on Corn Island except, instead of the tropical Caribbean beach, you feel like you are in the middle of the Amazon rain forest while staying at the Charco Verde.  The hotel can arrange other tours around the island including hiking both the Concepcion and Maderas volcanoes.  This is great place for those seeking an adventure, especially those nature enthusiasts.  Room rates start at $35 a night.
