Jamie is amazing. Honestly, without his kindness I don't think our trip would have been the same. La Omaja is beautiful. The pool and the view of the lake and volcano is to die for. I love how the rooms are separate units and each have their own little porch. Everyone that worked here was wonderful and sweet and the...

Stayed one week and loved every minute. The most beautiful views and friendly staff. The value was unbeatable and the food fresh and delicious! Thanks to Jamie for everything! The ride their is a bit rough, but it is all a part of the experience. A high-clearance vehicle is a must!

La Omaja is a beautiful place to stay on Ometepe. They arranged for a taxi to meet me at the ferry and after about a forty minute ride I arrived. I was greeted immediately and shown to my room. My room was part of a cabin that was divided into two separate units. My unit had a private bathroom with...
