Ojo de Agua, Isla de Ometepe

(800+ reviews on the web)
Fountain Tourist Spot
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. Make Ojo de Agua a centerpiece of your Isla de Ometepe vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Isla de Ometepe trip generator.

  • Beautiful! Feels more like a pool though, out in the jungle, which was still super cool. Water is clean and refreshing. Be careful of little ants while you are sitting on the stone by pool, they bite!...  more »
  • Ojo de Agua is just what you need on a hot day in Ometepe. Spent half a day here and the entry fee is well worth it, there is a rope swing into the water which was pretty average and not at all scary ...  more »
  • Really good spot to cool down in the chilly spring waters in between exploring other attractions of Isla de Ometepe. Beautifully located in the midst of lush Nicaraguan jungle. It is a liiiitle bit of...  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!
  • 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!
  • Great water hole! Even has a rope where you can swing into the pool. A relaxed and friendly place.
  • A must see place if in this area; a nice, cool place, very clear water, a friendly staff, all at a reasonable cost.
