Ometepe Island, often promoted as one of the world wonders, is really unique. Ometepe has two impressive volcanoes that have formed the island. The fact that one is dormant and the other still active creates a surprisingly varied flora & fauna. First, there is the still active Concepción volcano, with its 1610 meters the highest of the two which has a dry tropical climate and the soil therefore does not support a lot of vegetation, which makes climbing it an especially dry and warm adventure. On the other hand, there is the Maderas volcano (1394 meters), covered with humid tropical rainforest and therefore tough as well.
