How to go to El Encanto

  1. The most likely intermediate point in your trip to Ometepe is the city of Rivas. From there you take a taxi to San Jorge port (20 Cordobas per person).
  2. From San Jorge take a ferry or boat either to Moyogalpa or to San Jose del Sur port (50 Cordobas). See ferry schedule down in this page.
  3. At the port on the island, take either an express or a collective taxi. The express taxi costs $20 up to 4 people. The collective taxi costs $5 per person. In this case, make sure that the taxi driver agrees to take you all the way to our parking lot and NOT only to the entrance.

How to drive to El Encanto
