  • In each place of the Ometepe island you can rent a kayak to make travel between the Istian River, and can also be reached with guide.

Which I have done in Costa Rica (Tortuguero) cost me the same as but there I've seen much more. I advise do so without a guide, it is not dangerous and if we know how to handle a kayak is cheaper.
