Originally we weren't going to head out to Isla de Ometepe but changed plans at the last minute and I'm so glad we did. What a great unique adventure and staying at Hospedaje Soma enhanced the experience.
Hospedaje Soma has a variety of room options in the open and airy compound, and we stayed in a cabin because it had air conditioning (yes, I'm a warm weather wimp I admit). The cabin was large with plenty of space, very clean and had great beds. What more could you want?
But that's only part of the story - the other part was just the vibe and social aspect of the place. The staff was wonderful - I speak very little Spanish, but that was not an issue since they all spoke English so well.
My favorite part was dinner in the evenings - if you choose, they will make dinner right there and its served in more a communal style in a common area, so you get to interact and talk with the staff and other guests. The food was excellent - and we met other travelers from Canada, Germany and Holland. Puts things in a world view context which I enjoyed.
My only regret was that I didn't stay longer...
