How to have an active Latin American vacation


Vacations are great but not everyone wants to spend their holiday time staying still. Here’s some ideas to make your next trip to Jicaro one filled with activities.

Relaxing during a yoga session

Active is a word that deserves a relative definition. You don’t have to run a marathon to be active. For many people, a relaxing, active session of yoga helps to exercise the muscles and joints that might be a bit stiff after a flight to Nicaragua.

 Exploring nearby isletas by kayak

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is surrounded by a number of small isletas, similar to the one that the lodge is built on. Take one our kayaks and head out to explore the surrounding landscape with a guide. This will help keep your upper body and core engaged, and provides amazing water-level views of this spectacular environment.

 Touring historic villages, towns and cities

Jicaro Island Ecolodge is located only a 15-minute water taxi ride from XX, a historic town that was first settled in XX. The history of Nicaragua includes influences from the Mayans and the Spanish, providing a rich and beautiful history for visitors.
