4.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Water is the place to go to relax, regardless of age. Mineral waters they have healing properties. The atmosphere is very quiet and family, but you can buy your coconuts with ron and them beers. Food seemed somewhat expensive, but it was very tasty!

  • Arrived early in the morning (a Saturday), we were the first on the site. We have about 2 hours took advantage of the peacefulness of the place and the pleasure of bathing alone in access beautiful transparent water basins. But around 10:30 / 11: 00, the site started to come alive with the arrival of local families and we preferred to go visit other places. The site is beautiful.

  • Great place to take a swim! Amazingly clear mineral water bubbling up through the rocks feeding two small man made lagoons. Supposedly the water had healing properties.... That might have something to do with the water side bar service! They also have trails and some wild monkeys were hanging out in the trees! A rope swing and tightrope across the water add entertainment to the poolside lounge chairs and friendly service!
  • Very nice place to swim, fresh water and the best of clear water. Look like a big swimming pool but this is natural!
  • Fun day trip. Perfect for a hot day. The water is cool and crisp
  • A much needed escape from the stifling heat, but hard to get here via public transportation. The freshwater pool caters to tourists, but the vendors aren't pushy. Would recommend visiting in the morning if you want some quiet, the backpackers start filtering in during lunch.
  • What a great way to spend the day. Water is clear and cool. Entrance is $3 per person. They have a swing and a tight rope. There is even a restaurant where you can order food and drinks.
