Jicaro Island Eco-Lodge, Grenada

Experience the colourful, colonial city of Granada, then sail off to a luxury casita in a stunning eco-lodge, on a private island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua.

Different experiences and new sensations follow one another in quick succession on Jicaro Island – making your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Nicaragua an unrivalled procession of unforgettable memories.

Not only will you have the satisfaction – and unashamed luxury – of staying on a private island, in one of the leading eco-lodges in Nicaragua, but you’ll also be able to visit the colonial cities of Granada and Leon. Or place yourself in Jicaro’s green, leafy treetops to watch the dazzling birdlife. Or zip line through the forest canopy. Or ride a horse through fragrant citrus groves. Or take a sunset cruise in a kayak across Lake Nicaragua. Or swim in hot springs on top of a volcano. Or learn to interpret the rainforest. Or sand board down the slopes of Cerro Negro…
