Ometepe hostel : La Peñita Hospedaje : BECOME OUR PERSONAL GUEST

The old hostel

The original house took mam and dad years to build piece-by-piece with limited resources. In the early 2000s, this family had its first groups of backpackers from foreign countries such as the USA, Canada, Germany, and Holland. In these early days, this was just their house. Lizzeth with her brothers would give their rooms to the backpackers and visitors. The family self would sleep all together in one room, so the guest could experience a nice stay with them. In order to provide our guests with maximum comfort and safety, we rebuilt the house from scratch in 2016 making sure it’s strong and durable for the future. The hostel is small with only 4 bedrooms, so you will feel at home with us. Sit on the front porch of the hostel to see the locals come along, or stay around the back of the house for more peace and tranquility.

“Lay down in a hammock and enjoy the laid-back life of Nicaragua”

The Ometepe hostel La Penita is located in the middle of the island Ometepe just 2.5 kilometers from the main town of Isla de Ometepe: Altagracia. The same distance away as the wonderful natural well on the island: Ojo de Agua with its crystal clear water. We are only 500 meters from the base of the Ometepe volcano Conception and its hiking route. Only 30 meters from the main road and the bus stop. Taking the right ferry to Ometepe, the bus trip to our hostel will only take 20 minutes. The main road will take you to all corners of the island, with a bus, a mountain bike, scooter, quad, or even by horse. (We rent bikes, motorcycles, quad, and horses for your stay)
