Where I stayed
Hotel Central - Altagracia Ometepe
It is better to get a guide. Hotel Central has a guide (Osvaldo) that they subcontract. He speaks English and is very reliable. He knows the volcano and the town very well. Avoid the lose canons that offer their services in and around the various towns in Ometepe
You should plan to leave early (5.30am). Start the hike before the sun and the heat take a toll on you. If everything goes well you should be back in town by 3 to 4 PM go straight to the beach and wash your sweat and relax your muscles in the warm shores of the lake.
There is also a great thermal spring called "Ojo Del Agua" it is 8 km from Altagracia and a great spot to swim, relax and have a great meal.
Enjoy the hike and spread the word.
