San Juan de la Isla Beach front lodging wrapped in nature

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 sandy Santo Domingo Beach - inside a working fruit farm and private nature reserve. 


San Juan de la Isla enjoys stunning views of Ometepe's towering volcanoes, the rugged, active Concepción Volcano and the misty, cloud forest wrapped, Maderas Volcano. The lodge’s beach-front location is the ideal base for kayaking and swimming in Nicaragua’s lake, clean, warm waters, hiking inside its private nature reserve, mountain biking, horseback riding and of course volcano climbing.

San Juan de la Isla also gives back to the community, with its own educational project for island children that helps preserve island culture against the pressures of international tourism, while simultaneously opening the door for employment opportunities from the tourism economy with free English language instruction. Your visit also helps conservation, as it supports the private nature reserve and ecological farm at San Juan. (photo)


Our visitors are pleased with the laid-back, authentic island style of our lodge and property. The classic, century-old Spanish colonial hacienda house has been faithfully restored (link to restoration text), its horse stables converted into unique rooms and new adobe cabins and wooden bungalows added to mix lodging options with lake front dinning in true Nicaraguan island style.
