Hotel Villa Paraiso
Secluded hotel with comfortable cabins and a beautiful setting – the best option amongst Ometepe island’s simple accommodation.
Marooned in the middle of Lake Nicaragua is the dramatic forested island of Ometepe – dominated by the peaks of two volcanoes and fringed by beautiful white sand beaches. Accommodation on the island is simple and in our opinion the best hotel is the friendly, family-owned Villa Paraíso.
Hotel Villa Paraiso enjoys a secluded spot on Playa Santo Domingo, where its cosy cabins sit within a landscaped garden. Most have private bathrooms with hot water; some also have a kitchen. All come with air-conditioning and a front porch with hammocks and chairs to relax in. There is also a thatched bar and restaurant serving traditional Nicaraguan fare.
A variety of activities can be arranged including volcano hikes, trips to the petroglyphs and bike rental.
