Laguna De apoyo to Ometepe

Does it really take roughly 4.5 hours to travel between the 2 via taxi or ferry services?

Yep something like that. by Land will take you around 2.5 hours plus a bit of time that you will wait for the ferry and a bit more than an hour to cross to the island.

i would think 4.5 is a little on the long side, but maybe once you include everything. If you are down at the bottom in Laguna De Apoyo its 15-20 minutes up and out to the highway. Once there is maybe 1.5-2 hours to the ferry. The ferry takes around an hour give or take, depending on which one you take.

The variables will be how long it takes to get the cab in the Laguna, how much traffic there is on the way, how fast the driver is, and when you arrive if you catch a ferry just about to leave in a few minutes, or if you just missed one and need to wait 30-60 minutes for the next one.

Theoretically with little to no traffic, and fast driver, and catching a boat just on time, you could make it in under/around 3. But best case scenarios never work out here.

Hi

From the bottom of the Laguna until ferry terminal it takes 11/2 to 2 hours and than one our to cross the Lake so travel time is around 3 hours...but that you have to count waiting for ferry or taxi etc....

It's about 1.5 - 2 hours to the ferry but if you are taking a car on the ferry you need to get there early or they can give your reservation away. The crossing is around 45 mintutes.

Great, thank you. As that helps with planning and sounds reasonable to do.
