The Experience

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is Nicaragua´s most high-end nature eco resort located on a private island in Lake Nicaragua. Jicaro is the best of hotels in Granada, Nicaragua. The ecolodge is located just a short boat ride from the colonial town of Granada with spectacular views of the Mombacho Volcano across the lake.

At Jicaro you stay in your own little house, a “casita”. The nine casitas on the island all have lake views and are within a short walk from the pool, restaurant, and wellness center. The casitas are two stories, with a private bedroom and a king size bed on the second floor; and on the first floor, a spacious living area that connects to an outside deck overlooking the lake. The casitas and the furniture are made locally from Rainforest Alliance certified wood. Most notably, the oversized hammock and comfy furniture of the deck will invite you to relax and feel the peace of this magical lake. Early morning coffee and late afternoon ¨sundowner¨ delivery service is available upon request. 

Each casita is equipped with: 

• Mosquito netting
• Ceiling fans
• Large doors and windows for cross ventilation
• Eco-friendly amenities.

Jicaro is a secluded island getaway, ideal for honeymooners or an out of the ordinary romantic vacation. A stay at Jicaro allows for a perfect combination of relaxing in your room, revitalizing at the wellness center, and actively exploring the flora and fauna that this tropical paradise has to offer. Just imagine a day beginning with yoga, leading into time on your private hammock, then sunset kayaking, and concluding with a candlelight dinner on a floating deck on the lake.
