Ometepe Island to San Jan del Sur

Jun 24, 2013

The boat crossing back from Ometepe was a whole lot slower than the journey to the island and a whole load more nausea-inducing. The lake water was not rough but the waves caused the boat to roll. Great fun. I thought about takibg a video but that would take me right back there, so I thought better of it.

Before the start of the boat journey some women were standing by small platforms in the lake doing their laundry. Photo here.

We transferred from the ferry to San Juan in fume filled taxis. San Juan its a more commercialised b beach resort with a not great beach. I think the town is more of a jumping off point for surfers to other beaches. SJ has decent beach front restaurants. It could be a place that develops into Cancun in Mexico with high-rise hotels and flashy bars.
