Jicaro is a hidden jewel in the jungle of Nicaragua. I have to say this place is magical if you are looking to a relaxed vacation enjoying nature where all your expectations are met, and you'll be in Zen. The setting is incredibly romantic, the ambiance is set so that you lose yourself with your partner in each moment, starting...

From the moment we arrived to when we left our experience at Jicaro was magical. The staff was so incredible. The food was amazing. And the island itself was so peaceful and lovely. It was an experience we will remember for a lifetime.

I don't have a single complaint about my 4 days / 4 nights at Jicaro -- everything was exquisite. From the moment we were welcomed onto the island -- after having been picked up seamlessly at the airport, driven an hour to Granada, and then taken by 15-minute boat ride to Jicaro -- we felt immediately calm, comfortable, and well...

We were at Jicaro for the final night of our honeymoon. It was a beautiful stay. The food was delicious, it's run very efficiently, and most importantly the staff is so helpful and friendly. A special shoutout to Paola who was so helpful, friendly, and funny. She was so attentive and had us practice our Spanish with her the entire...

I really loved my stay in Jicaro, they have an amazing staff, the best place to relax. They will arrange special amenities if it is a special date, everyone is very kind. Rooms were nice and comfortable, and the pool was an excellent place to just enjoy of the gift of the surrounding nature.

In a few days, my husband and I will be celebrating 2 months of being married.  In those two months, since we returned  from a 'mini moon' in Nicaragua, we've been extraordinarily busy with work and other commitments, and have only now found a few quiet moments to write this review   This is no exaggeration: We have thought and/or talked...

Went there for our anniversary and was blown away by the hospitality before, during, and after the visit. Setting up the reservations and making multiple changes due to airline troubles didn't even phase them. Arrived in a downpour, but the driver made sure we were covered from the rain and brought us to the boat. They made sure it was...

No matter how many reviews you read, nothing prepares you for the breathtaking experience you will have at Jicaro. We stayed here for 4 nights early June as the first stop on our honeymoon in Casita 5. As many reviews have said, the exceptional service started the second you reach the island. I honestly would be delightfully surprised if I...

They say people matter and they also say the devil is in the details. Rubi, Julien, Paola you should be proud of what you do every day. Jicaro by itself cool. Nine casitas with your own view of the lake. Morning coffee and cake at your balcony and the smart birds who know how to get your cake out of...
