Stayed two nights at Jicaro Island Ecolodge. There is something magical about this isleta, and the serenity, peace and wildlife that you can appreciate while there.
The casitas are immaculate and well thought-out. Comfortable, yet with everything you need. My favorite moments were waking up early and having coffee on the casita balcony -- listening to the birds and watching the lake.
The staff is wonderful and very helpful. They will arrange any excursion for you, answer any questions. Both Manuel and Octavio were friendly and knowledgeable. Everything was well organized (the pick-up from the airport, excursions, our transport to the next hotel). Also, the way they prepare your casita at night while you are at dinner is fantastic!
The food was very good - highly recommend the fish and shrimp tacos, the chayote salad, and, for breakfast, everything we tried was great!
The only downside, which was noone's fault, was that one of the days we were there, the isleta was overwhelmed with gnats -- chayules -- that were everywhere!! Other than the chayules, one should be prepared for a few bugs, in the casita and around the property, but the chayules were crazy and intense.
Otherwise, a great stay.
