Jamie and his family have the nicest location on Ompete. The infinity pool overlooks the lake with a volcano view that takes your breath away.
We stayed in a private casista with bathroom and A/C. We had our own porch and just a quick walk to the restaurant.
The food was fantastic. We loved the plantain chips with refried beans as a snack before dinner (and sometimes lunch!).
Jamie can arrange a wondeful kayak trip where you see caymenes (alligator family), turtles, egrets and many, many more birds. (it was a highlight of our trip).
The roads to Merida aren't very good but it's worth the taxi ride from the ferry port. We recommend La Omaja to everyone. We would come back to spend a week here again as the island is so beautiful.
