Isla Ometepe - Nicaragua's mysterious volcanic island

Isla Ometepe is a truly unique place. As for so many, the island was without a doubt one of our highlights. The world's largest freshwater lake is surrounded by the pristine waters of Central America's largest lake, Lago Nicaragua. Formed by two volcanos Conception and Maderas, the island took the shape of an infinity symbol. The once native Nahual people called the island "two hills" (Ome = two, tepe = hills). Isla Ometepe's mystical charm and breathtaking rugged landscape have intrigued been intriguing mankind ever since. As you approach the island with its twin-coned silhouette dramatically rising into the horizon the boat ride itself brings the promise of a magical experience.

But, we thought to visit Lake Natron was off limits due to our time and budget restrictions. Quite unexpectedly we found ourselves on one of the most mesmerizing journeys through Masailand!
