I strongly recommend staying here if you are visiting Ometepe. Eileen and Darrin will make you feel completely at home and are very concerned to make your stay comfortable. The accomodation is small but beautiful, just right for a couple, and the breakfast Eileen serves is a fantastic start to each day. Although it's located at the base of the Maderas volcano, Via Verde's balcony has a fantastic direct view to the Concepcion volcano. There are two separate rooms with their own separate balconies plus access to the front view of the volcano. A cove for swimming in the lake is just five minutes away, and a 15 minute walk brings you into the tiny village of Balgüe. Amazingly, the village has a first-class place to eat, Casa Campestre, run by an English couple. Most of the expats that we met, in contrast to our experience here in Costa Rica, were thoroughly integrated into the local community. La Via Verde's location, 35 km from the port of Moyogalpa where most tourists arrive, may seem daunting, but bear in mind that no matter where you decide to stay on the island you will be faced with the problem of transport. Buses run rather infrequently from the door of the lodging, and also from a crossroads ten minutes' walk towards Moyogalpa (or Altagracia). The Santo Domingo beach, perhaps the best on the island is at that same distance. You absolutely must give Eileen and Darrin a call.
