Hot List 2010!

Jicaro Island Ecolodge made the prestigious Conde Nast Hot List 2010. Jicaro is the only hotel on the list in Nicaragua and one of only 15 hotels in all of Latin America to receive this honor. After Arenas Del Mar in Manuel Antonio, Jicaro on Lake Nicaragua near Granada is the second hotel that is managed by Cayuga that makes this list just months after opening. Check it out here!

Fishing Using a Net

Guests at Jicaro Island Ecolodge on Lake Nicaragua can enjoy a tour to experience the traditional form of fishing using a net. The local fishermen have great ability to throw the net in the form of a circle and catch Guapote or Mojarra. Jicaro supports the local community through tours and also purchasing the fresh fish to be served in the restaurant.
