An Update on the Biogas Project at Jicaro Island Eco Lodge


Soon local families near Jicaro Island Eco Lodge will change the way they cook their food.  They will begin using biogas obtained from a small pig farm. This project arises from Jicaro Island Ecolodge’s motivation to improve both social and environmental surroundings in the local community, and now it has become a reality.

The purpose of the project is:

• Protect the environment by no longer have to cut trees for firewood for food preparation (cooking).

• Generate and increase options for obtaining financial resources (through the sale, purchase and management of pigs)

• Disseminate alternatives and experiences to guests and families for the creation and ownership of an ecological alternative.

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