This tour made our entire vacation--- this may be the greatest thing to do in all of Central America. My brother and I booked a private tour (for a ridiculously reasonable price) via email and met Johan right as we got off the ferry on a rainy morning. It turns out, Johan knows everyone on the island and they even... More

We're not usually the type of travelers to go for tours but we got valuable advice from our hotel about the expense of transportation on Ometepe so we booked with Johan. This was an excellent choice! Johan is an amazing guide: knowledgable, smart, a great communicator, and very kind. We saw many sights over the day and fell in love... More

Going to three Nicaragua towns in 10 days, our group didn't have much time to check out Ometepe - we'll have to come back for that, but Johan and his tour company were a great solution for a day excursion. Johan was an awesome tour guide - fluent, super knowledgable about his island and its history, proud Nicaraguan and just... More

My wife and I went on a customized day tour around Ometepe Island and this was a great experience! The first stop was San Ramon waterfall, which was amazing. It was a nice scenic hike through the rainforest. Our guide Johan was fantastic, friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He took us to a delicious lunch right on the beach and we... More

I contacted Javier from the US and set up a driver to pick us up at the ferry upon arrival in Ometepe. We missed the first ferry and had to take a later one and Johan the driver was patiently waiting for us. He took us to our Eco Lodge and we booked a Day tour with him the next... More

We booked a day on the island with Ometepetours. Johan was our guide, and he was awesome. Our trip included a 1.5h hike to a beautiful Maderas viewpoint, short visits to Domingo Beach and Jesus Maria peninsula, as well as Ojo de Agua. Thanks to Johan, it was a very nice and relaxing day. He truly conveyed his enthusiasm for... More

Johan was absolutely INCREDIBLE. He is an amazing and extremely knowledgeable guide! He knew how to adapt to our hiking abilities and was able to tell when a break was needed. Our group learned so much from him when it came to nature, hiking and Nicaraguan culture. Additionally, our group felt very safe with Johan during the difficult parts of... More

We climbed the Concepcion with Johan and he truly made our day. Not only did he give us a lot of information about Nicaragua, its fauna and flora, but he's also great fun and he easily adapted to our average hiking skills. At the end of our hike we were completely exhausted, but Johan arranged some cool beers at the... More

If you don't feel like reading further here's the synopsis: Johan is a stellar guide. We went with him up Concepcion (8-10 hours) and felt completely confident with him the whole time despite some low visibility and big gusts. He's clearly done some more serious mountaineering before. He read the groups capabilities perfectly and set a good fast pace with... More

I just had the pleasure of climbing Volcan Concepcion with Johan and could not give him higher praise as a guide. He was very adaptive to our pace as hikers and he was knowledgeable about the minutiae of plants and animals that we passed on the way. He was also very safety conscious - which was important since later parts... More
