I stayed here for three nights with my eighteen year old daughter and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The most important reason is you are actually staying with a Nicaraguan family that resides on Ometepe. You get a unique insight in to the everyday life of a family and their household. Its wonderful to see their extended family living on the property and neighbors stopping by to say hello or dropping off other fruits and vegetables. Wonderful to be woken up by their roosters and the howlers across the way.They treat you like family. By far the best food we had on the island that is cooked by the mother.

The installation were very basic, but for 10$ we weren't expecting more. The thing that made our stay enjoyable was Mark, the host. He would always help us whenever we'd need advices, give us extra sanitory equipements after it being stolen, and even have fun and sit with us at night. I had a hard time on ometepe having my bag stolen, but hospedaje las peñitas leaves me with a good taste of this island.
