Plantations, Dry Forest and Hot Springs!

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a place surrounded by very beautiful and varied landscapes. It is the ideal place to disconnect from the everyday life and perform different activities in contact with nature.  Many of these activities take place very near this beautiful island! One of the activities you can do is take a walk through the dry forest of the Mombacho Volcano and venture into the cocoa crops. It is an experience where you enjoy not only the beauty of the tropical dry forest but also learn the cultivation of the cocoa and you connect to the activity of the indigenous people who inhabited these lands in the pre-Columbian era.

Learn about the history of this precious fruit which at one time was considered the Aboriginal currency.  In the picture at the top, we see some of our guests tasting the fruit of the cacao in its natural state. But that is not all, after hiking...enjoy a relaxing swim in the hot spring, on the shore of Lake Nicaragua.
We are very happy to have such rich volcanic soils for the establishment of different crops in the vicinity of Jicaro Island Ecolodge.
