Interesting fact about Cacao beans



Did you know that Cacao beans were used as a currency before the Spanish arrived in Nicaragua? When asked about where the treasures were, the local indigenous tribes sent the Spaniards to the Cacao plantations. You can imagine their disappointment. Today, leaving from Jicaro Ecolodge in Lake Nicaragua you can explore the Cacao and Plantain plantations overlooking the Granada Isletas and learn more about the rich history of Lake Nicaragua.
