“Clssic spot that everyone goes to”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

This seems to be the one attraction that everyone who visits Ometepe goes to. For better or for worse. During high tourist season the place can be packed. Its hard to find a seat, and you get to enjoy the company of loud drunk annoying tourists. However, there are plenty of times where its near empty. Totally clear cold water that provides a nice cool break from the heat. Other than that, there isnt much. The bathrooms and changing rooms are basic and pretty nasty. $3 entrance fee. Keep an eye on your stuff, as things go missing sometimes when everyone is swimming and the bags are left out by the trees. Overall i dont think it lives up to the hype that everyone says its amazing! Its pretty basic, but its definitely a nice place to chill out for a couple hours in the afternoon. i couldnt imagine spending all day, or coming back multiple times in a visit though.

“Natural pool to rejuvenate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

We stopped here twice during our three day stay on Ometepe. The water, cool and clear, seemed to be even more refreshing in the shaded, smaller pool area. There was one loud group of Americans or Canadians but aside from them, it was fairly peaceful and the perfect place to cool down from the heat.

There was a very small fee that they charge and I wonder if they should ask guests to rinse down before entering the pool, similar to the cenotes in Mexico?

Ojo de Agua is a natural wonder. The water is crystal clear and temperate. It makes for a wonderful 1-2 hr. break.

“Great place to swim”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Ojo de agua is a lovely swimming hole and the water is clear and fresh and cool. A great place to relax for a couple of hours. It is more developed than I expected (concrete edge to the pool) but includes chairs around the pool and stalls to buy coconuts etc.
