If you’re looking for a peaceful place to get away from it all, a short flight away from much of the U.S., El Jicaro Island Eco-Lodge on Nicaragua’s big lake near Granada would be a fine choice.

Later I will post some photos on here of animals and food, but how about a video tour for now?

I promise you’ll look forward to meal time here. You’ll feel downright healthy too on top of it. The sustainability claim is a serious one here and it extends from the building materials to what’s on your plate at all times. Pretty much everything comes from local sources, vetted well.

Enjoy the tour, then see our full review of El Jicaro Island Lodge.
