How to get here

We are located in Punta Gorda, 2.5 km passed the town of Balgue. We have a large sign out to the front to the right of the road with a kayak on it.  

 

To get to the island you will need to take a ferry from the port in San Jorge near Rivas. Once you reach the island you can catch a bus to us or take a taxi. Taxis are quicker but cost between $30-35 on average, athough it is possible to share this cost with other travelers or try and negotiate with the taxi drivers. We are also always happy to arrange a taxi for you. 

By bus you will need to go first to Altagracia and then change busses. From Altagracia you will want the La Palma/Corazol bus, which leaves Altagracia at approximately 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. every day except on Sundays. There is no bus service to us on Sundays.

Alternately, hitchhiking is very common and safe in Nicaragua. You can catch a bus from Altagracia to Balgue and try and hitch/walk the last 2.5 km. 

There is only one main road on the island, so while it is large, it’s hard to get lost.
