Omepete Island

Kayak in Rio Istian

The Istian river is a natural reservoir of residents and migratory birds, the locals say the river almost cuts the island in two and runs between the Maderas and Concepcion volcanoes. The dormant but mighty Maderas Volcano can be perfectly seen from the lake, and the even taller, active Concepción Volcano also forms part of the picture. After entering the river birds can be easily spotted. The bird-list includes egrets, herons, jacanas, stilts, and even predatory birds like hawks, among many other birds. Quietly paddling down the beautiful waterways is definitely relaxing and with some luck you may spot monkeys and turtles. A true lover’s paradise!
