Southern Nights – the perfect home base to explore Rivas and Ometepe!

Whether you’re an adventurous traveller or a laid back traveller, we have something for you at Southern Nights. You can rent a bike and explore Ometepe for a few days. Enjoy the waterfalls, the lagoon or challenge yourself with hiking Conception; an active volcano towering 1600m above the island. We can organize all of the above tours with local, knowledgable guides so the experience is stress free. If you’re more laid back you can hang out on the beach of Lake Nicaragua or visit Rivas to see the Nicaraguan lifestyle, explore the locals market and admire the colonial buildings that remain. San Jorge is tranquil, quaint and off the beaten path so Rivas is also where you can make a supermarket or ATM stop. When you’re ready to leave we can organize transport to Granada, Leon, San Juan Del Sur or  even into Costa Rica.

Parking-Service

With a large secure parking lot on the premise you’ll never have to worry about leaving your vehicle here for the day while you’re exploring the area. Not to mention, if you do an overnight trip to Ometepe, but don’t want to bring your vehicle, you can leave it here at no charge.

Our Tours 4 You

Hiking Tours

ometepe_rivas_nicaragua_southern_nights_image_0006There are two main hikes on Ometepe Island varying in terrain and difficulty. Both hikes require guides, that we can arrange, due to the possibility of getting lost or injured. The Concepción hike starts at dawn and has a high degree of difficulty standing at 1610m of steep terrain. The most popular trail starts from Moyogalpa and is roughly 10 hours to the crater and back. The hike leads through farmland and jungle, then later over rocks and debris closer to the summit. It gets incredibly steep and sulphur can fill the air; it’s just as tricky scampering up as crawling back down and caution needs to be taken. The Maderas hike takes approximately 8 hours with several look out points along the way standing at 1394m. The humidity can make it a muddy, slippery path and sometimes you have to really climb instead of walk. From the summit, you can descend to the crater lagoon and swim in the cool water of the perfectly still lake. On a clear day, both hikes offer incredible panoramic views of the island, lake Nicaragua and the mainland.

Motorbike Tours

12741862_1561729174140081_2515343379707293878_nOmetepe and San Jorge can be difficult to navigate with a vehicle due to road conditions, or lack of roads in general, so we offer bike tours to better see the island and surrounding area. With several styles of bikes available we can accommodate to any level of rider. On Ometepe, you can ride around the entire island in only a few hours but we make a day of it! We can stop at the waterfall and natural lagoon, any of the many beaches or numerous cafes and vistas along our ride. The choice is yours! To rent the bikes you will need a valid drivers license and we also offer pedal bikes if you’d like a more laid back tour. If you have any questions use our contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
