San Juan de la Isla

An idyllic beachfront lodge

Authentic charm and rural living

Amidst the breathtaking vistas of Ometepe's iconic volcanoes, San Juan de la Isla invites you to immerse yourself in the natural splendour of Nicaragua's majestic landscapes

Set against the backdrop of the towering active Concepción Volcano and the mist shrouded dormant Maderas Volcano, this beachfront lodge offers an idyllic retreat for both adventure and relaxation.

Embrace the allure of Nicaragua's pristine lake waters with swimming, while hiking trails within nature reserves and volcano climbing beckon the adventurous soul. For those seeking tranquillity, simply bask in the island's serene beauty.

San Juan de la Isla is a three-star, family-run haven featuring rustic cabin-like accommodations crafted from wooden logs on stilts. Each cabin offers beachfront serenity or is nestled within lush tropical forests with volcano vistas. Choose between individual adobe and wooden cabins or rooms housed within a central building, once the colonial horses' stables.

Experience the authentic charm of rural living within Finca San Juan, a tropical fruit tree plantation teeming with rare wildlife. Indulge in fresh, local cuisine at Los Naranjos restaurant, where ingredients sourced from our own farm elevate every dish, served within the restored century-old Spanish colonial hacienda.
