For those who love adventure and sports Ometepe is even closer to heaven. With two lovely volcanoes to climb, one active, the other with a misty crake lake at its summit, what draws most adventure lovers are the climbs. Although they are non-technical in nature, they are challenging, Maderas for the steep muddy trails through dense forest and Concepción for steep terrain that also includes loose footing and normally strong winds near the summit. That said, you don’t need to go vertical to enjoy sports on the island. Mountain biking is made doubly pleasant by the numerous dirt tracks and friendly locales and though water sports have yet to become fully developed, lake water is warm and clean, great for swimming, kayaking and (bring your own set-up) windsurfing.
