Moyogalpa Overview

Known by some as the Gateway to Ometepe, Moyogalpa may pop up on your list of travel destinations if you are planning a trip to Nicaragua soon. Moyogalpa is a municipality situated in the Rivas department of Nicaragua. It has great services and plenty of interesting legends, though many would not consider it to be ultimate travel destination in Nicaragua.

You can rent a car to get around in, or enter the jungle by way of horseback or boat. Guides will help you to explore the nearby volcanoes more safely while shops, bakeries, shoe shops and pharmacies provide you with all the basic services you could need. In the evening there are bars and canteens and you will find their beverages and food absolutely refreshing. Moyogalpa in Nicaragua is also very old and home to a great collection of ancient Nahuatl artifacts that have been found in Ometepe. Other things worth seeing are the parish church at the bottom of Main Street and the pier. However, the number-one attraction here has to be the near-perfect cone of the Concepcion Volcano. This slumbering giant has erupted several times over the centuries and now measures 1 610 meters in height
