Photo of the Week- Isla De Ometepe

Lately I’ve been reminiscing about my first ever backpacking trip to Nicaragua in 2007. It was that trip that spiked my interest in traveling and led me to a life fueled by exploring the world. Nicaragua was and still is one of my favorite countries. I can’t help but think about one of my favorite places in the country- Isla De Ometepe (the island of two mountains). This unique island was formed by two volcanos rising out from the fresh water Lake Nicaragua, the largest island in Lake Nicaragua, and the largest lake in Central America. It’s been almost 8 years since I have been to Nica and I’ve always dreamed about returning~! After looking at my pictures I know I must return. Now the question is when?

    • Thanks so much! I visited some active volcanos in Nicaragua with billowing smoke coming out of them and it was the neatest experience! There was a sign that said “in case of an eruption hide under the nearest vehicle”. Yes, maybe that strategy would save me from flying rocks, but I can’t see how it would have saved me from the hot lava.
