Visited Ometepe recently and made the trek to San Ramón waterfall. This was one of the stops on our private tour so we did have a guide but one is definitely not required. There are clear signs indicating which direction to go. Make sure you leave well before noon to ensure you have enough time to take in the scenery, enjoy the falls and get back safely before the sun sets. I would suggest some sort of running shoe or low cut boot with at least some support, 100% no sandals. The last part of the journey is over uneasy terrain, rivers, rock and trees. Bring lots of water, it gets really hot when there in no breeze in the forest. We took our time, snapping pics and learning about different species of plants and insects on the way up. Once we arrived I didn't waste anytime. I immediately took a much needed refreshing rinse under the 73m of falling water. The pool at the bottom is just over knee height and the pressure from the falling water is just right. There were quite a few people up there enjoying a bath or some sunshine, but it wasn't overcrowded at all. It would have been nice if it had a deeper pool and a larger volume of water falling, but it was still impressive. The hike down was obviously easier and faster. I would suggest this to anyone really, just take your time, watch your step and stay hydrated.
