About Us
Caballito´s Mar was born on January 19, 2008 out of the partneship of three friends, two Nicaraguans and a Catalan, with the purpose of providing tourist services to both domestic and foreign guests, and the philosophy of creating jobs and opportunities for islanders, especially for residents of Merida. In Caballito's Mar you can enjoy a family atmosphere and the opportunity to meet and interact with the local culture and lifestyle.
How to go
  1. If you come by bus from Granada, San Juan del Sur o Peñas Blancas (the border), your most likely halfway point will be the city of Rivas.
  2. From Rivas you can take a collective taxi (20 córdobas) to the port of San Jorge (20 minutes). You’ll find the taxis in the bus terminal, but you don’t need to wander around looking for them: the drivers come to look for passengers as soon as people get off the bus.
  3. In San Jorge, boats depart for Moyogalpa or San Jose on the island (1 hour journey). You can take the small wooden launches (30-40 Cordobas) or a larger ferry boat (60 Cordobas). The fares are collected during the trip, so it’s not necessary to stop at the port office. If you are traveling with your own vehicle and you want to take it to the island, a reservation for one of the ferries is required. Phone numbers and schedule for the ferries are provided in the table in this page.
  4. In Moyogalpa (or San Jose) you can take a bus marked with the destination of Merida (33 Cordobas). The trip takes 2+ hours and goes via Altagracia. Ask to be dropped at he Caballito’s bus stop. From there walk 200 meters toward the beach. If you arrive at night, a good flashlight is recommended. Take into account that bus service is limited on Sundays and the schedule is subject to change.
  5. You can also hire a taxi van in Moyogalpa to take you directly to Caballito's (1:15 hour trip). The taxis offer their services at the dock. You can negotiate a group price depending on the number of people and their destinations. For example, the fare at this date is around $35, but the ride could be shared by several people.
