Ometepe Island is a 276 square kilometer jewel in the great Lake Nicaragua and is considered the largest island located in a freshwater lake
The island’s name derives from the Nahuatl words "ome", which means two, and "tepetl", which mean hill or mountain: the place of two mountains. The mountains are actually volcanos whose striking profiles can be seen for miles around.
Ometepe has long been a refuge for many local tribes creating a unique legacy only found on this site.
