If you want a peaceful, idyllic get away, this is it. A short thirty minutes from Granada, this Eco lodge features nine casitas built on an acre island. The casitas are beautifully constructed, with lots of wood and perched on the hillside overlooking the water. Service is impeccable. The menu is eclectic and ambitious, and takes local ingredients and transforms... More

Wow! Everything about our stay at Jicaro Island was unbelievable! I loved starting our Jicaro adventure with the boat ride from the port in Granada through the lake to Jicaro Island. It feels like you've arrived in paradise when the boat pulls up to the dock and the staff are waiting to welcome you with a traditional beverage. We arrived... More

The very best thing about this private island is the exemplary service. From the time we checked in at the port in Granada for the launch transportation to the hotel to delivery back to the port after our delightful stay at Jicaro, the service was thoughtful and congenial. Our first names were used by all personnel, making our stay feel... More

Dear Genibre, greetings from Jicaro Island where the rains have stopped by now and we are in the dry season. First of all, we hope that your toe is OK. We are sorry about the one missed coffee deliver, but happy to hear that you were so relaxed and laid back that you "didn't even care". That total state of... More

Nicaragua is full of surprises and Jicaro was beyond blissful with its beauty. From the moment you step off the private boat that whisks you from Granada’s marina to the private island, the warmth of the staff and attention to detail set the stage for an incredible experience. The EcoLodge was built from reclaimed wood downed during Hurricane Felix in... More

Jicaro went above and beyond our expectations. We did not know what to expect when we landed in Managua but the hotel shuttle was waiting for us with our names on a sign and we were whisked away to the port for a quick boat ride to the island. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the manager, the lead... More

My husband and I needed an escape after a particularly hectic year. We had stayed at Jicaro for a few days three years ago and remembered the perfect setting and the complete relaxation we experienced on that visit. We were a little concerned that after three years the property would be starting to show its age (as do most properties... More

This is a wonderful little resort. It starts with the location. The architecture is perfect but most of all the Staff make this resort. They are friendly and do everything to make you feel at home. This is a great advert for Nicaragua and I wish all the Staff the best in the future.

I just got home from Jicaro....just walked in the door....and I'm sad...sad that I must return to the reality of the world. My fiance and I spent a few days at the Jicaro Ecolodge, and we both agreed that it was the most amazing trip we've ever taken. The staff treated us like family from before we even got there,...
