We went kayaking with our three young boys (6, 8, and 9) on a spur-of-the-moment afternoon trip. We had three kayaks--the guide went with the youngest son, and my husband and I each took another boy. We opted for the motorboat to tow the kayaks...More
The guys offer either guided or self guided kayak trips at best rates around. All very friendly, knowledgeable and keen that you have a good time.
Gear is all good, life vests included.
If self guided the estuary is a little hard to spot so...More
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

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
