Ometepe

It's time to say goodbye to Granada and head for our next location - Ometepe Island. We run into our first case of bad luck at the ferry dock - they have no reservation or ticket for us. I show them our voucher that we pre-booked, but the look that the ferry attendant gives me oozes nonchalance. I tell a few untruths about who we are and why we're visiting and 15 minutes later, we're on the ferry we were supposed to be on. We meet some nice people on the ferry that ask to split a taxi with us to the far side of the island. We are both staying about a 30 minute drive from the ferry terminal. We tell them that we have a car and offer them a ride. Suddenly, we have new friends! Steve and Jennifer end up being from Seattle (where I'm from) and we get them to come up to our hotel for dinner. We stay at the most amazing hotel, La Omaja. It's located at the top of a hill overlooking Lake Nicaragua. They recently put in an infinity pool and I still can't describe the sunsets. They were the best of my life ... until a few days later when we were in San Juan del Sur (see photos). It's been a long day of driving and figuring out how the heck to get here. We share a few beers with the other lodge inhabitants and kick back.
