With pristine waters and beautiful Isletas, the lake is an enticing site for exploration and discovery.

Once you’re done, head back to the resort by boat, with the warm and peaceful afternoon just beginning to cradling Jicaro Island. Once back at Jicaro, have a little siesta in one of the hammocks, followed by a cool tropical cocktail to begin the evening. Perhaps a walk along the shoreline is the best way to watch the Nicaraguan sun dip below the horizon! With the evening closing in, it’s time to eat, and head to bed.
