Ojo de Agua, Isla de Ometepe

Cool off at Ojo de Agua, a natural spring. Dip into the clear, cool water, brought to the spring by an underground river that has been purified by the nearby volcano. The soft, mineralized water offers an inviting moment of respite from the heat of the area, and gets constantly renewed and replenished by the spring. Separated into two main pools, the springs have seen an upswing in popularity with locals and tourists alike, drawing significant crowds on weekends and holidays. Sit on one of the deck chairs and relax under the shade of the umbrellas, treating yourself to some fresh coconut from the onsite vendors.

    OJo is a nice pool to cool off and have a swim. It is not spectacular, but I enjoyed it regardless. There are two pools side by side with a rope swing (small) and a slack line. I am from Canada, so th...  more »

    The build up of this place caused me to expect much more than what is there. It is a concrete bottom pool formed by a dammed spring. The water is clear and perhaps it has some minerals in it, but it i...  more »

    Did not see the "thing" with this pool. Cold, lot's of leaves and the pool is not natural. Spend your 5 dollars on something else!  more »

    A fantastic swimming hole for locals and tourists. There is a short trail to enjoy and we saw monkeys in the trees above the pool. Don't expect to have the place to yourself, as there are plenty of gringos drinking out of coconuts.

    Beautiful place to stop by and take a dip if you're in the area, however, the pools don't feel as natural as I would have liked. The water is crystal clear though and worth a quick visit!

    I really liked it here, a nice cool pool surrounded by jungle to escape the mid-day heat. The water seemed clean, there were monkeys playing in the trees overhead and there is a rope swing and a tightrope that you can use. There are tables and chairs and lots of people were just lazing around reading or enjoying a Coco Loco. We visited in the week and there were 20-30 people there which seemed a good number, I understand at the weekend it can be a bit overrun. We took the bus there from Moyogalpa, which was very easy. We had to walk about 2.5k from the bus to the pool, however it was a pleasant and easy walk, I understand you may be able to get a second bus a bit closer if needs be however.

    A true natural wonder, warm crystalline water, delicious swim and beautiful vegetation, artisans sell little souvenirs and drink/food service available next to the natural pool

    Stunning swimming pool of natural water with a rope swing, coco locos made fresh by the water, food available. Attracting a tourist scene but definitely doesn't feel crazy commercial quite yet. Good vibes and a welcome oasis in the middle of two volcanoes. Have fun and swing swing Tarzan!
