Map and Directions


From San Jorge by ferry by public transport:

Please go to San Jorge, the port to get the ferry for the island , very near Rivas. Once you are on the island you can get a bus to Merida ($1 per head) or to Balgue ($1). If you take the bus to Merida you must get off at Santa Cruz, the journey takes about two hours and you must ask the bus driver to let you off at Santa Cruz. From there walk in direction of Balgue for about 300 metres until you find the entrance to El Zopilote.

From San Jorge by ferry and by taxi:

Fastest way is to pay a taxi from the port to our hostel. It will cost 20/25 usd but in 35 minutes you'll arrive here.
