Jicaro Island Ecolodge

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a delightful boutique resort located on a private island in Lake Nicaragua. The lodge is just a short boat ride from the colonial town of Granada with spectacular views of the Mombacho Volcano across the lake.

There are 9 private casitas — little house — 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. Each casita is equipped with mosquito netting, ceiling fans, and the large doors and windows can all be opened for cross ventilation. There is a fabulous oversized hammock and comfy furniture on the deck for you to relax and feel the peace of this magical lake.

Breakfast and lunch are served à 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. This is an ideal place to stay for pure relaxation or to hike or kayak around the Isletas. The hotel also offers various tours to the surrounding area of Granada for you to explore.
