Owner description: Museum El Ceibo on Ometepe Island is a must see in Nicaragua with one of the biggest and best conserved collection in the country.The museum has two exhibition halls, one with pre-Columbian statues and artifacts and one which shows the history of the Nicaraguan coin. When visiting Ometepe, El Ceibo is the place to get to know and experience the Ometepe culture. El Ceibo is not just a museum, it is fun for all ages!

I took the tour of the museum, and was amazed at the artifacts and history of the island. Our guide was well informed and his English was outstanding. And according to one of the women in our group, the restroom is one of the best on the island.

This little museum is definitely worth a visit. It has 1,500 items, all appropriately grouped and presented. Our guide was most informative and engaging.

Initially we were due to visit petroglths on another part of island, but our driver said we would have a better experience here; I'm so glad he did. We got there early & there was a large collection of pre Columbian artifacts to see. Our guide spoke Spanish, but that was ok as it gave me some practice. I looked at the bad review on here, & wonder why someone would visit if they are not interested in the history of the island? My husband & I loved it & the collection was extensive & in amazing condition. A highlight of our trip.
