Moyogalpa is a municipality in the Rivas department of Nicaragua that is most notable as the gateway port for Ometepe Island. It is also the largest village on Ometepe Island. Moyogalpa is just a bit over an hour ferry ride ride from San Jorge, and is located on the west side of volcano ConcepciĆ³n.

From the port, Moyogalpa’s main street runs uphill to a small church where it meets the circular road which circles around the island. The ConcepciĆ³n looms over Moyogalpa and provides a dramatic and always changing backdrop to the village scenery.

If our schedule permits though, we’ll spend some time in town to have a look around, maybe eat a meal or socialize at one of the local bars.
