Traditional Nicaraguan Cuisine


Jicaro’s gourmet culinary experience is one that has plenty of options and prides itself on the selection of fresh fish from the lake and nearby ocean, local vegetables and fruit, and locally farmed chicken and beef.

We also want our guests to experience what we typically eat so every Saturday, we offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy traditional Nicaraguan cuisine.  From delicious tamarindo/chia juice to freshly made tortillas to patacones, pork dishes and, of course, beans and rice!  Try out all the options and let us know…which is your favorite?

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