Moyogalpa is a municipality in the Rivas department of Nicaragua. Moyogalpa is the largest village on the Ometepe Island and the home of the largest port. There are multiple hotels, hostels, and restaurants on the island, along with small shops called "Pulperias" selling a variety of items from snacks to basic clothing.EtymologyIn the indigenous language Moyogalpa means "place of mosquitos."TraditionsMoyogolpa like many of the towns along the island the people of Moyogolpa mix indigenous traditions, European, and Catholic traditions. There is no time when this is better displayed than during the patron saint's festival. Moyogolpa's festival is known for el baile de las Inditas. This dance is supposed to represent the relationship between the indigenous people of Nicaragua and the Europeans and the combining of the two cultures. The woman represents the indigenous while the man represents the dance. The dance represents the relationship as one filled with love, respect, and chivalry, although not necessarily equality.
