A Family Experience in Nicaragua at Jicaro

We had a family stay at Jicaro recently and they asked if they could share their experiences with us in our blog.  Of course!  We love hearing our guests stories...if you would like to share your experiences on our blog, please email:

Here is their story:

Our family went sunset kayaking in Lake Nicaragua. It is very different  from the lakes we canoe or kayak on in the United States because the foliage and the birds and mammals are so different than anything we have seen.
 Our guide was magnificent. He took us to areas of the lake we would have never found on our own. He introduced us to the different kind of birds like: herons, duck, parrots, etc.  We went between small islands and we saw how is the lifestyle in this beautiful place.  We searched for the howler monkeys and with our guide we could found them. We even kayaked through shallow lily pad filled areas of the lake to pick up small fruit (similar to what we call a peach). This trip was awesome, it was a pleasurable experience for our entire family.

During our stay at Jicaro Island we went to the cloud forest at Mombacho volcano.  It is one of the most amazing sights we have experienced. We found birds, glasswing butterflies, howler monkeys and the red eyed tree frog. The view from the top of the volcano was breathtaking and the hike was highly enjoyable. After that we went zip lining, that was a wonderful experience as well.

Located on a private island on Lake Nicaragua near Granada, Jicaro Lodge is a boutique hotel offering a variety of tours and activities.
