Jicaro Island Ecolodge
Jicaro Island Ecolodge is Nicaragua’s most upscale nature resort located on a private island in Lake Nicaragua. The lodge is located just a short boat ride from the colonial town of Granada with spectacular views of the Mombacho Volcano across the lake. Nine private casitas serve as the perfect setting for romantic escapes. Immerse yourself in a magical island experience filled with peace, tranquility and access to a wide variety of tours and activities.
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. Imagine a relaxing day participating in yoga, taking a kayak out during sunset, and conclude your day with a candlelight dinner on a floating deck on the lake.
At Jicaro you stay in a private 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 a spacious living area that connects to an outside deck overlooking the lake on the first floor. The casitas and the furniture are made locally from Rainforest Alliance certified wood. Each casita is equipped with mosquito netting and ceiling fans, and the large doors and windows can all be opened for cross ventilation. 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.
All meals and non-alcoholic beverages are included in the room rate. Breakfast and lunch are served a la carte and dinner is a choice of fresh daily specials. Jicaro has an open kitchen right next to the restaurant, so it is a real treat to watch the chef prepare your dinner. The menu has plenty of options and prides itself on the selection of fresh fish from the lake and nearby ocean, local vegetables and fruit, and locally farmed chicken and beef. We believe that when you have fresh, tasty ingredients you can cook very simply and the food will be extraordinary. Click HERE for more information.
