Your Nicaragua Family Vacation kicks off in Granada along the shores of Lake Nicaragua. Indeed, Jicaro Island Lodge provides the perfect hub to start or end a journey in Nicaragua.
It allows you to tour the fascinating history and architecture of the colonial city of Granada (the oldest colonial city in the Americas), hike and zip-line through cloud forests on Mombacho Volcano, paddleboard around freshwater lagoons while spotting monkeys, swim in hot springs, visit banana plantations, and even peer into the glowing lava filled cone of Masaya Volcano at sunset.
Finally, transfer two hours to Nicaragua's beautiful Emerald Coast.
Spend the four days enjoying the plethora of activities available at Rancho Santana and the Emerald Coast. Surf lessons, snorkeling, sand boarding, pickleball, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, yoga, kids club, monkey scouting, and birdwatching are just a few of the favorite activities and amenities here.
Guests can also experience turtle hatchings on The Ranch’s own Playa Escondida, go boating, fishing, and golfing, or just indulge at the spa.
