I really did like Jicaro, but you have to be prepared for an outdoor living experience akin to luxurious camping. Jicaro is situated on one of the isletas, which means very remote and it is its own private island. Very cool. A private boat takes you over from the dock outside of Granada. We arrived and there were 5 staff... More

My husband and I just got back from an 11 day stay at Jicaro. We can't say enough good things about this place! The Excursions: Well worth the money. We went on the Masaya, Mombocho, Canopy Tour, Plantation and Granada excursion and they were experiences of a lifetime. Mombocho and Masaya were our favorites. All the trips were well organized,...

Dear Rachel, thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of your honeymoon stay with us. We loved having you on our island. Your review will be very useful for future guests. You explain the combination of "relaxing" and "activities and excursions" very well. You can either relax all day or be active and explore every... More

I strongly recommend Jicaro Ecolodge. They've done a perfect job transforming this little Isleta into a luxurious getaway. The staff level of service was among the best I've encountered anywhere. The bird watching was great - from the porch of our casita, dinner, or a kayak that we took out on our own and with a guide. We loved the... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and only have great things to say about everything. The property, service, food, everything was fantastic. The coffee experience in the morning (they have it ready/waiting on your private deck at the time you request) was the icing on the cake.

We used a Jetsetter deal for an extended weekend at Jicaro. The grounds and the casita were beautiful and perfect for us. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and a fishing excursion with a local fisherman. The quiet and slower pace on the island was enjoyable, but we were also able to use the ferry to head into Granada....

Jicaro Island Eco-Lodge is like heaven on earth. Aside from its picturesque location, the staff and the food make this place TOP NOTCH. First, the staff at Jicaro. I have never encountered a group of more genuinely nice people. More than that, if you told them something once - they remembered it. My husband doesn't drink. This was mentioned in... More

My husband and I found this place by chance and decided to go and celebrate my birthday on the 4th of July. We were there for 4 days and 3 nights. We've travelled all over the world and this was the most amazing place we've been to. Talk about peaceful and serene. We arrived at almost 10pm and were picked... More

We spent the last day and night of our honeymoon in Jicaro. Both of us absolutely loved it. The place is just an oasis of peace: the lake, the island, the landscape, that water, the birds. It was even better that what we expected. Food is also outstading, so are the juices and smoothies. They also prepared a small and... More

Dear mmcardona, greetings from Jicaro Island. Not many people come to Nicaragua on their honeymoon, but the ones they do have an incredibly authentic and unique experience. And at Jicaro you will be able to enjoy all the creature comforts in an eco lodge setting. What a shame that you only stayed one night with us. Many guests that book... More

Came here for part of our honeymoon and had an amazing experience. The arrival was magical as staff was waiting for us on the doc with fresh towels and cold drinks!
