Hola from La Paloma


Hello from the town of the dove

La Paloma, which means ‘the dove’, is about one and one half miles from the port town of Moyogalpa, which means ‘land of mosquitoes’. Ometepe means ‘two hills’ in the ancient Nahuatl language. So, in English our address would be: One and a half miles south of the land of mosquitoes, on the beach, in the town of the dove, on the island of two hills. However, my recommendation is to use the local hardware store’s address for us. A delivery boy bicycled to our house with a package of nails and screws. The address on the package said: To the gringos of La Paloma.
