Culinary Experiences at Jicaro

Jicaro Lodge is a place where you can not only enjoy the natural beauty and peace of mind but also have a beautiful experience learning about the preparation of our local food.

During your visit at our Ecolodge, you can enjoy a variety of traditional and delicious dishes. We always source the best local, fresh and healthy food for our guests.  You can also participate in the preparation of the food if you so choose, sharing with our chef, who will gladly provide you with all the necessary ingredients to create an exquisite dish.
In the images, we see one of our recent guests with one of Jicaro’s chefs, preparing Sopa de Rosquillas, a Nicaraguan cuisine. When you visit Jicaro Island Ecolodge, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our culture, cuisine and lifestyle!  To view a sample of the types of meals we can create for you, click here.

Yoga Experience with the Local Kids

During her recent visit to Nicaragua, yoga teacher Jennifer Galardi shared a few special moments in a yoga session with the children from Cedric Martin school.  This community’s school is located on one of the Granada Islands on Lake Nicaragua. The event was held outside on Jicaro’s yoga deck, a beautiful natural setting.  It was a very fun time for everyone!  To learn about upcoming yoga retreats at Jicaro, please visit BigWorldSmallPlanet for the current schedule of retreats.
