Nice place where you can swim in the cool, clear waters, there are hammocks to relax in and there is a restaurant. $3 entrance.

If you've come this far to get to the island, visit this little oasis. You get a good trip along the roadways, see some countryside, and then get to freshen up here. Rope swing, beautiful water, drinks on the lounge chairs.

So worth the entrance fee of $3 per person. We enjoyed the hospitality and atmosphere. It gave us a perfect break from our normal beach life. The Howler Monkeys were rather friendlier than usual. The tight rope walk was hilarious. The swing was another blast....More

Ojo de Agua is one of the must do in Ometepe island. It is a very nice pool surrounded by a forest. Enjoy coconut water meanwhile you're in the pool.

Stopped here during a day of touring the island by scooter. It was a great place to relax and take a break from the harsh Nicaraguan sun. Food and drink is available on sight. Tightrope and Tarzan swing are also available, but for the brave....More

Hi Brenda, yes there are lockers with enough room for your laptop and small things. They did not charge me for using them unless you loose the key.
