    Rescue

    A rope was thrown to them and they managed to drag the men and the boat onto the lowered car deck. There were big white smiles all round!

    Laundry

    Laundries are a little different in this part of the world. Here there are wash boards in the lake and women stand here and do the laundry by hand.

    There are lots of birds on the island and you will see many egrets flying low over the breaking waves on the beach.

    Whenever we had lunch on the deck these beautiful birds would come up close. By the third day they were no more than pigeons as you see so many and they always try to steal your food!!!

    Horse riding

    Horse riding was about $5 an hour. A guide will go with you and you get to gallop along the beach and the views are brilliant.

    Lake

    The Lake is vast and more like a sea than anything else. There can be huge swells and it does get rough as well as some high winds.

    Beach

    by paradisedreamer Written Jul 22, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Due the fact that it is a volcanic beach the sand is black volcanic sand and ash. It can get quite windy so if you had ideas of lazing on the beach this isn’t really the place for it.

    Maderas is the smaller volcano in the south, we did not go to the southern island but I have heard that there are some good places to stay.

    There are two volcanoes, Concepcion in the north and Maderas in the south. Concepcion is a perfect cone shaped volcano with amazing lava flows.

    Pier

    You get a great view of Ometepe when you arrive at the pier. You just walk to the end of the pier and wait for the ferry to arrive.

    A petroglyph etched into volcanic rock

    There are plenty of petroglyphs throughout the island left as reminders of the indigenous peoples who inhabited it. Also visible in Altagracia are the pre-columbian statues

    Beach Combing

    The beach near Playa Santo Domingo

    Tranquility. Lake Nicaragua is so large that you cannot tell the difference between it and an ocean. There aren't many activities that you can do, but it's a very peaceful place to escape to.

    Horseback riding on the beach

    Horseback riding on the beach was an excellent experience. It gives you a chance to explore more of the island than you would be able to on foot.
