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, active exploration and wellness retreats. Immerse yourself in a magical island experience filled with peace, tranquility and access to a wide variety of tours and activities. A stay at Jicaro is the perfect upscale alternative to hotels and resorts in downtown Granada.

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. 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 comfortable 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.

Although secluded on an island we want to give our guests a memorable culinary experience. All of your 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 created by the chef. 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.

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a secluded island getaway for your honeymoon or romantic escape. It is up to you to choose between spending the day with your partner in the hammock of your casita taking in the peace and tranquility of the lake or engaging in some of the adventures and activities available for more active days. They can arrange for private dinners on the dock next to the lake or on the bar next to the open kitchen where you can watch the chef prepare fresh fish from the lake or your favorite dessert.

A stay at Jicaro Island Ecolodge could have an emphasis on relaxing, yoga, massages, reading a good book or just taking endless naps listening to the tranquil waters of Lake Nicaragua next to your casita.

But if you are looking for an active multisport experience in your travels to Nicaragua, Jicaro Hotel has also many tours and activities to offer. The resident nature guide will be happy to arrange a personalized tour program for you prior or during your visit to Jicaro. The "must do" tours during a stay on the island are kayaking around the Granada Isletas, hiking in the rainforest, the famous Puma trail or visiting the hot springs at the foot of the Mombacho Volcano located just a short boat ride across the lake.
