Kayaking against breathtaking scenery and surrounded by volcanoes - a unique Ometepe experience
Take a closer look! With a little luck, you will spot the exotic inhabitants of the region.
Paddle through the calm waters of the Istiam River and enjoy the views of the volcanoes.
Here in the wild, birds, monkeys and alligators make their homes
Out in the Nicaragua's nature! Go on a half-day kayak tour of the Istiam river, which is full of surprises. Enjoy the beautiful view and paddle at your pace. Like a snake, the river meanders through the volcanic landscape of the country along the river.
You will be picked up and then drive about an hour to El Peru beach. The trip is an experience in itself, as you get to know the beautiful landscape and gain insights into the everyday life of the inhabitants. Arriving at the beach, a guide will be waiting for you to give you a brief introduction to your current vehicle. Kayakin relies on coordination between the hands that hold the paddle and the feet that take over the steering. Once you feel safe, it's time to hit the water. Even if it wobbles a little at first, you will quickly get a feel for how it works. The Istiam river is the separation between the two volcanoes and winds through the beautiful nature of Nicaragua. Paddle for about three hours past the stunning vegetation and discover birds, monkeys, alligators and unforgettable nature views.
Travel duration: Half day
