Departamento de Rivas Things to Do

  • Moyogalpa

    The largest village on the Isla de Ometepe with a population of around 3,500. Located on the west coast of the island it is here where the ferry docks and leaves to San Jorge. This place obviously is influenced by the tourist industry as there are a few hotels, restaurants, tourist info spots and the what not. What I'm assuming to be the main...

  • San Jorge

    This little village on Lago de Nicaragua seems like a quiet place except for the fact it is the port to get to Ometepe Island. Located only a couple of kilometres from the department capital Rivas, it's easy to get to. There is a couple of hotels here and restaurants but most visitors will use it a as gateway to Ometepe. You can also catch buses...

  • San Juan Del Sur

    San Juan Del Sur is one of the top two destinations to vist in this department. I found it to be a great little beach town and a welcome relief after spending almost a week in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Getting into town took a bit because the road was quite chewed up. The town goes at a slow pace considering it is a fairly big tourist town by...

  • Lago De Nicaragua

    When looking at a map of Nicaragua it may seem that the entire southwest portion is missing. That's because Central America's largest lake is located there. Cocibolca by it's native name or Lago De Nicaragua is a giant lake at 8624 km2. Althought it is not entirely located in this department, it probably here that the average tourist will get the...
