My family and I happened to travel to Ometepe Island on the Thursday before Easter (during Holy Week) which is the first of 2 statutory holidays leading up to the Easter Weekend. Wow. Trying to get the ferry from San Jorge to Moyogalpa on Omotepe was crazy. There was a lot of pushing and people budding in line to catch these small ferries. Hundreds of people pushing to get tickets. Then more shoving trying to get into the line for the ferry. Then - you guessed it - more pushing and shoving to get a seat on the ferry itself. IF you can avoid it - don't travel much during these days in most Central American countries!
With the ordeal of getting there over - we had a guide take us to some recommended spots on the island. We weren't overly impressed with Punta Jesus Maria which had a mediocre beach with some nice views. Next, we went to Playa Santa Cruz which was beautiful with shallow water where you could walk out very far and see both volcanoes.
Ojo de Agua was very, very busy. It was nice mineral water to swim in but overcrowded. I'm not sure if it's always like that but definitely crazy during Holy Week.
