In Rivas there was a cab driver waiting as soon as we got off the bus, he tried to tell us that we had to hurry to get the next boat in San Jorge for the island of Ometepe. We haggled the price but we still got swindled and paid 8$ for a 20 minute ride. We hungout for a while at San Jorge and tried to contact our Swedish friends in Moyogalpa on Ometepe. They told us to come to their hostel but when we got on the boat three American girls who kind of live here now told us to come to Little Morgans at the second volcano (Maderas) because there wasn't much to do in Moyogalpa.
The boat ride was quite interesting, it was so small and they packed people and bags to the brim. The guys working on the boat regularly jumped up and down between the decks on the outsides of the boats while we were underway. They wrapped all our bags in plastic and the girls sat under another piece of plastic with the workers. Jake and I sat in the rain. But the clouds cleared as we got near the port of Moyogalpa on the island. Jake got some good pictures but my GoPro was still under plastic. Steve (my English friend) was waiting for the boat because he wanted to find people to go to the other side of the island and share a taxi. He hopped into the van with us and the girls. We dropped him off at Zopilote and went back to Little Morgans (about 2 mins). Little Morgans was nice but there weren't many people and the girls took off to their room so Jake and I went to visit Steve. Zopilote, a farm and hostel, where Steve was staying was having a pizza night and they cooked extremely good wood fired pizzas and lots more friendly people. We decided to change hostels the next morning.
