From there you may take a shared taxi ($1 per head) or a private taxi ($3-$5 ) to the port of San Jorge. This takes about 20 minutes. The taxi ranks are situated near the bus station in Rivas. From the port of San Jorge there are various ferry boats ($2 per head)or boats ($1.50 per head) which will take you across the lake to the town of Moyogalpa (1 hour from land), or to the town of San Jose del Sur (1 and a half hours from land).

From Moyogalpa or San Jose del Sur 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 atSanta 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 Balguefor about 300 metres until you find the entrance to El Zopilote.

If you get the bus to Balgue you can get off directly in front of the entrance to the farm. You will spot an old yellow school bus which is our bushop. Ask the bushop girls if there are free places on the farm and if the answer is yes, just walk along the signposted route to the reception (10 minutes walk).

Please Note: There are NO buses on Sundays.

Arrival by taxi

From Moyogalpa, you can get a taxi directly to the farm. (one hour) the taxi drivers offer their services at the port. It is a good idea to contract the price before getting the taxi. The price depends on the number of passengers and is usually about 20-25 USD.

You must reserve a place for your car on the ferry beforehand. There are 3 ferry boat companies. “Rey del Cocibolca” (tel. 86913669) is the largest ferry boat and goes to San Jose del Sur port. Or there is “Che Guevara” (tel. 25634779) to Moyogalpa and “Milton Arcia” (tel 25694284) also to Moyogalpa.

Then follow the direction to Balgue at the junction of el Cino take right, after 8 km at the junction of Santa Cruz take left, you’ll find the entrance of El Zopilote on your right after 500 meters.
