And Sometimes We Relax: Ojo de Agua, Ometepe Islands

I know this blog is called Mel On the Go, and I usually am pretty active trying new things or repeating activities I love in new places. Sometimes a girl just needs a break. And Lyna is on vacation, after all, so we took a day to relax yesterday.

The Ometepe Islands is a good spot for a relaxing day. While I couldn’t find any spas, the lakefront here is similar to an ocean, with sandy beaches and waves lapping onto the shore. It’s lovely and relaxing. And the water temperature is perfect!

As you know, we were tired and sore from Wednesday’s epic hike, so we kicked back and took the day at a leisurely pace and enjoyed ourselves.

Our day began with a lakeshore breakfast, where we watched the waves and the horses walking through them. $3.50 for breakfast at our hotel and we were fuelled for the day. Maybe a dip in the lake or just a chill in the hammock. We had a very limited agenda.
