Nice spot with a stunning floral garden and mariposaria. Behind the mariposaria are easy nature walk paths through giant ceiba trees and lots of birds. The small laguna has a lovely wetland margin with shorebirds.

One of the more naturey things to do on Ometepe. Lots of different butterflies in the exhibit and only one hummingbird from what I saw. Lots of paths to wander around on with a nice little beach, marsh, lookout point. Budget travellers could probably get by without it but if you like big clean trails without many bugs you can...

Ometepe is abundant with nature compared to other places on the mainland. This is an easy loop around a swamp or lake, whatever you'd like to call it. Definitely recommended to see the creatures, especially if you go with a guide - they tend to have a knack at knowing just where to look. Also: find out about the legend... More

We really enjoyed this site, which is near the ferry, so we went there with our guide, Danilo Flores of Cultu Natural (based in Moyogalpa), right from the boat. The butterflies, especially the Blue Morpho, were fun, and the walk along the Laguna led us to see a variety of trees, a howler monkey, a small cayman, turtles, giant termite... More

We had a wonderful tour guide take us to this nature preserve. We hiked all around and it was amazing. There were no tourists and it was all natural beauty.

This is a fine enough place for a short walk. As a walk it was 3☆ but the fact we saw so many monkeys means it was worth a look.
