From Managua (Augusto C. Sandino International Airport MGA) or Liberia (Liberia Costa Rica Airport LIR) airport you can rent a vehicle, have a driver waiting or follow the bus routes to Ometepe to get to OM Island Retreats.

Let us know if you’d like any assistance along the way.

To arrive on Ometepe you will need to take a ferry from the Port town of San Jorge, Rivas (open every day).

If you'd like a driver waiting, let us know what ferry time you'll be leaving the mainland. We have a list of trusted and reliable drivers that are available anytime of the day.

If you’re bringing a rental vehicle across to the island, we recommend that you make a reservation in advance, especially during peak periods from November to April.

Moyogalpa is the main port and has more frequent options for arrival and departure to Ometepe. You will also find a larger supermarket and ATMs there; most businesses on the island are cash only (or paying by card if available will incur extra charges) so this is a good place to arrive and get situated for island life.

OM Island Retreat is a 10-15 mins drive from the port. You can either reach us with a private car, a tuk-tuk or taxi.
