Finally, we took the one hour ferry trip to the large island Ometepe, in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. Two volcanoes that have risen out of the lake created the island and its tropical forest is filled with howling monkeys. We stayed at an eco-resort that is still operated as a plantain farm. As we were returning to the mainland, I was reading a book on my iPad and one of the passengers pointed out to me that the ferry had a free wifi connection!
