Your Home on Ometepe
San Juan de la Isla offers a variety of lodging options, all close to the shores of Lake Nicaragua and feature authentic Nicaraguan in style and character. Each room, cabin or bungalow features handmade furnishings made right here on our property by local Ometepe artisans using precious woods sourced from our farm natural strands and replaced by our reforestation project.
All of our lodging options feature unique designs with many island native touches, as well as first world amenities like air-conditioning, private baths with hot water, extensive and varied lighting, quality beds and bedding.
1) BEACH FRONT BUNGALOWS • Like Nowhere Else
The most impressive of these lodging options are our lake front bungalows. The lake front bungalows are built on stilts to maximize lake and volcano views and take advantage of the nearly year-round on-shore lake breezes. They feature extensive use of windows and glass doors to maximize views and natural light and include ample wooden decks to enjoy the lake and surrounding nature.
2) ADOBE CABINS • History Made New
Located in the shade of giant coconut palms and fruit trees with views towards Madera Volcano, our Adobe Cabins are not just a blast from the past, but an integral part of our cultural heritage. The advantage of this ancient form of construction used both by indigenous builders and the Spanish settlers is it freshness in hot climates, noise dampening and sensually thick architectural lines of the walls. San Juan de la Islas has constructed these adobe cabins for our guests to enjoy timeless lodging from years gone by, with modern conveniences of today.
3) STABLE ROOMS • Cowboy Cool
A working farm since its founding in the 19th century, the hacienda house, just like a modern home’s garage, kept transportation nearby. These horse stables are part of the Finca San Juan’s heritage and received a ground up restoration and conversion to guest comfortable rooms that offer lodging right next to our resorted historical hacienda home. All rooms feature Nicaraguan all-cotton hammocks hung to where cowboys once tied up their horses.
