Lake Nicaragua or Lago Cocibolca is Latin America’s second largest lake and one of the cleanest and most beautiful in the hemisphere. Lake Nicaragua enjoys year-round 80°+ (27°C) water temps and is teaming with aquatic life and punctuated by more than 450 volcanic islands. Incredibly more than 80% of the lake water is still clean enough to drink and commercial boat traffic is nearly nil. This wonderful lack of development is also reflected in Lake Nicaragua hotel infrastructure, with the best hotels being ecolodge lodges and rural lodges that reflect the peace and year-round sunshine of the lake. One of these lodges, Jicaro Island Ecolodge is upscale the rest are precious for their locales and exclusivity, for few travelers have enjoyed the private shores and beaches of the unique islands in Lake Nicaragua. Below is a complete list of Lake Nicaragua hotels we recommend for our visitors.
