Cascada San Ramón
Sendero El Porvenir
Nature's Shower at Cascada San RamonA two hour hike off the main road on the southwestern slopes of Maderas Volcano on Ometepe Island brings you to the gorgeous moss-covered San Ramon waterfall (Cascada de San Ramon). The trail first leads you through sun-exposed farm fields that are fed by water from San Ramon. It then winds through a lush jungle with bluejays, butterflies and howler monkeys, and dead-ends at the sheer cliff-face of the falls. Wade through the water to cool off under its natural shower or simply sit on a rock and stare up to take in the vertical panorama. There is a $3 entrance fee.
Recommendation 1: Bring a towel if you plan to get wet so that you can comfortably get back into your clothes.
Recommendation 2: Arrive by motorbike and park at a second parking lot further up the trail to shave off about 30 minutes of hiking.
