Ometepe Island Map

Ometepe Island is an island in Lake Nicaragua formed by two volcanoes, Maderas and ConcepciĆ³n. The Ometepe Archaeological Project works on the Maderas side of the island. Hacienda Magdalena is clearly visible on the map--locate it by clicking on the placemarkers, then use the controls on the left to center it and then zoom in.

Many people stop at the hacienda before making the hike to the top of Maderas, one of the few places on the Pacific side of Nicaragua where you'll see rain forest.

Ometepe island is reached by ferry from San Jorge, ending up in Moyogalpa on the ConcepciĆ³n side. A bus will take you to Balgues, shown on the map.
