San Juan de la Isla

Experience the most unique lake island in the world from an unrivaled vantage-point: San Juan de la Isla - Nicaragua's most comfortable and authentic island lodge - located lake-front on Santo Domingo Beach. San Juan de la Isla enjoys stunning vistas of Isla Ometepe's towering volcanoes, the rugged, active Volcán Concepción and the misty, cloud forest wrapped Volcán Maderas. The volcano lodge's beach-front location is the ideal base for swimming in Lake Nicaragua's clean, warm waters, hiking inside nature reserves, mountain biking, horseback riding and volcano climbing. The understated, century-old Spanish colonial hacienda house has been faithfully restored and serves visitors as the lodge’s restaurant. Lodging is exclusive, limited to four colonial rooms, a new construction building of four rooms and porch, two independent bungalows and three log cabins set along the beach under swaying coconut palms.

San Juan de la Isla Activities

Comfort, privacy, great lake and volcano views, authentic Nicaraguan hacienda style, a long sandy beach and warm water all invite the visitor to make San Juan de la Isla the first choice for a beach front lodge on Ometepe Island. With more than 160 acres of lush green fields, forest, streams and fruit trees, the lodge grounds reflect the tranquility of Latin America’s second grandest lake. Void of pretension or kitsch so frequent in Central American island lodging, the San Juan de la Isla Lodge is an ideal base for visitors who wish to feel at one with the island nature and culture. Swimming to a nearby rock island in front of the lodge, walking or horseback riding on the long sandy beach, kayaking or mountain biking and volcano climbing and nature hiking to name just a few.
