Used Eric Henriquez as our guide for Ometepe, highly recommend his services, very professional, knowledgeable very good english.
The hike to San Ramon waterfall took our family about 5 hrs round trip.
The hike up very strenuous at times but scenery and experience was so beautiful (hubby and I 60 plus, so we took longer.)
Would not recommend hike to one's that have difficulty doing physical activity as path uphill, uneven ground then gets very challenging and steep last kilometer.
The reward is a beautiful pool at bottom of waterfall (does have leeches in it so just check after plunge) Happy to have accomplished it.

Waterfall at the end was not as impressive as I liked after the tough walk up, however the walk itself was what I enjoyed most. Fantastic scenery, howlers along the way.
Very steep/ tough climb nearer the top.

The hike is difficult. The first 3/4 can be accessed by horse, but you must make the last 1/4 on your own. It's very steep and rocky. You must climb over boulders. Some of it is wet and slippery. However, when you reach the top, there is a magnificent waterfall and pool below. You can go in the falls and the water is drinkable. Wear your bathing suit, you're going to want to go in.

It is a good hike . Start early in the nicaraguayen heat it is hard. The last leg is more difficult but worth it. You can use the fall to cool down . It gets more crowded at lunch.

This is one of the highlights in Ometepe! I have read some reviews of dry waterfall during dry season, which I can understand. We visited the waterfall in december and it was quite small already, but really nice and high. The hike is about 1.5hrs/3-4km and in some places kind of steep, more than I expected. The first part of the hike is on a road (sometimes it is possible to go up -first 2km- by quad, unfortunatly we weren't allowed to go up with the quad because of the bad rainings the last days) but then it gets better; forest and so on. Rent your quad at Willy's in Moyogalpa, good service and no issues at all. We paid 50$ and 100$ deposit, which we got back without any problems. It's a long ride from Moyogalpa though, 1.5hrs and once you are on Maderas island, the road gets bad. Wouldn't recommend this with a scooter, altought we have seen lots of people driving with a scooter on these roads (you might get issues with your rental company). A quad is much more comfortable!
