Jicaro's Water Purification System

The Jicaro Island Ecolodge has its own water purification system. Water filter comes from the Lake of Nicaragua (the body of water surrounding Jicaro). Water is not taken directly off the mass, but through an artisanal well with walls covered with clay brick built on the shores of the Lake.  This brick serves as a natural filter.
The water in the well (from the Lake) is sucked through an electric pump. This water is sent to the room where we begin the process of purification. Later, after the purification process, it is distributed to the different areas of the hotel. On your next visit to Jicaro Island Ecolodge, you will know much more about our sustainability program and share with us how together we can use our different resources effectively to protect our planet.
