HERO Nicaragua Jcaro Island ecolodge floating deck


Situated on a private islet in Lake Nicaragua, and accessed by a 15-minute scenic boat journey, the Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a literal island of serenity. Part of that comes from the architecture, with the lodge built organically around the island’s mature trees and boulders. Rainforest Alliance-certified and hurricane-salvaged wood helped create the rustic luxury of the two-story raised casitas tucked into the island’s trees.

Within you’ll find a downstairs living space, king-sized beds, and a king-sized hammock on the waterfront deck ideal for browsing the birding guide found in your room.


It’s rare to come across a property with such a unified atmosphere, but at Jicaro the sense of tranquillity and genuine warmth pervades all corners whether it’s the impeccable service throughout, or the friendly chefs working in the open-air kitchen to deliver your rum caramel chicken or banana pancakes. And it’s the same with the environmental ethos, from the chlorine-free infinity pool perfect for sundowners to the biodegradable soap.
