We are located in Punta Gorda on Isla de Ometepe. El Jardin de la Vida is 2.5 km passed Balgue, shortly beyond the big mango trees. We have a large sign out front 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 they leave Altagracia at approximately 8 AM, 1 PM and 7 PM every day except Sunday. 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.
