Kayaking on Río Istiam One of the best experiences you can have on Ometepe Island is the kayak tour through the Istiam River. Picking up the kayaks in Merida at Caballitos del Mar you will paddle north along the coast line between Río Istiam and Merida to get to the isthmus where you enter the river. This tour offers you a good and ample view of Ometepe's biodiversity as the swampy area with its tropical vegetation is a perfect retreat for animals of all kinds. You will see a wide variety of animals, like birds, turtels, caimans, butterflies and others more while you are kayaking on the calm waters of the river. This area is a great spot for birdwatchers and tours in this spectrum of interest can be arranged for the early mornings and late afternoons too. We ask you to advise us if you need a bilingual guide for your tour. The regular kayak tour on Río Istiam takes around 3 hours. You should bring about 2 liters of water and a snack. It is absolutely necessary to bring a hat, sun block or a long sleeve shirt and sun glasses, mosquito repellent. Do not pack to heavy, otherwise you can leave your belongings at the kayak station for the time of your tour. Charco Verde Lagoon and Lake Kayaking At Charco Verde Nature Reserve it is possible to combine your hike around the lagoon with some kayaking and get a view of the area from the water. Charco Verde is home to plenty of bird families, a group of howler monkeys and sometimes white face monkeys are hanging around in the trees.
