About Playa Gigante

Nestled off the beaten path, El Gigante is a vibrant fishing village just over an hour north of San Juan Del Sur along Nicaragua's stunning Pacific Coast. Aptly named "big foot" in Spanish, the town's moniker captures the gentle embrace of lush green foothills meeting the ocean. Here, untouched beaches, wandering farm animals, and rustic dirt pathways paint the scene, reminding visitors of the beauty in simplicity and the art of slowing down.

The essence of El Gigante can be summed up in the phrase "Take it Easy". From the moment you arrive, there's an unmistakable feeling of releasing tension, as if exhaling a long-held breath. It's an invitation to simply exist, to embrace the moment without hurry or worry, and to relish in the laid-back rhythm of coastal life.

La Isla de Ometepe

Discover the enchanting island of Ometepe, home to the world's largest freshwater volcano. Your journey begins with a scenic ferry ride from the port town of San Jorge, offering breathtaking views of Lake Nicaragua.

After arriving on the island, it is about a 45 minute drive to San Ramon, a cascading waterfall at the foothills of Volcan Maderas. Embark on a scenic hike, approximately 3-4 hours roundtrip, starting on a wide trail that meanders through shaded pathways, offering glimpses of verdant open fields. As the journey unfolds, the terrain gradually ascends, providing a welcome respite for weary legs along a more established trail. The final stretch, spanning 25-30 minutes, presents a thrilling adventure as you navigate creeks and rocky terrain, with moments of scrambling to conquer yet another incline. Brace yourself for an exhilarating trek to behold the majestic beauty of this hidden gem, a testament to the awe-inspiring landscapes of Ometepe. We will enjoy a packed picnic lunch to enjoy at the top.

Conclude your adventure with a refreshing dip in Ojo de Agua, a mineral pool where you can unleash your inner adventurer with a thrilling Tarzan swing experience. Prepare to be captivated by the beauty and allure of Ometepe at every turn.
