We are headed to Ometepe for four or five days next January as part of a five or six week Nica trip and I'm trying to figure out which town to make our home base while we are on Ometepe. Is there an advantage to being on the east coast to the west or vice versa or to being in one town as opposed to another? We are active, fit seniors and hope to do a volcano hike and to get to other recommended sites. We like to rent bikes and cycle, walk, hike, kayak and enjoy the scenery and local food and culture. We like the beach and might relax there for an hour or two but don't want to spend entire days basking in the sun. We are generally budget travellers but don't mind splurging if it is worth it. Interested in any and all opinions! Thanks!!
