 1.  Aqua – Nestled on a private white sand beach along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast just north of San Juan del Sur, almost hidden amongst the treetops, lives a resort like no other.  Private, secluded villas, constructed of sustainable hardwoods and furnished by local artisans are your home while you enjoy Nicaragua at it’s purest.

2.  Jicaro Island – located on a private island in Lake Nicaragua just a short boat ride from the colonial town of Granada.  The lodge offers spectacular views of Mombacho Volcano across the lake. Nine private casitas serve as the perfect setting for romantic escapes, tours and activities as well as wellness and yoga retreats. Immerse yourself in a magical island experience filled with peace, tranquility. (http://www.jicarolodge.com)

3.  Morgan’s Rock – located on a 4,000 acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle, nearly half of Morgan’s Rock is a government-protected reserve. The remainder of this breathtaking property is set aside for low-impact agriculture (which provides our restaurant with freshest produce, meat, and dairy) and award-winning accommodations.  Fifteen exquisite bungalows await, constructed of natural materials and tucked gracefully into the lush jungle.  Gorgeous views abound from nearly every spot at Morgan’s Rock.

Mukul – For as long as you’re able to stay, consider Mukul home. Consider Playa Manzanillo’s immaculate white sands your personal playground. Consider the entire Emerald Coast of Nicaragua your kingdom. And certainly consider your accommodations your own private estate.  Be more than a guest at Mukul. (http://www.mukulresort.com)

TOTOCO – Ometepe Island’s most unique and environmentally responsible hotel.  Situated at the gateway of Maderas Volcano’s cloud forest, TOTOCO is surrounded by all things natural. The property covers 6 hectares and includes its own organic farm, as well as borders one of Ometepe’s premier organic shade-grown coffee plantations. With panoramic 320° views, the lodge and swimming pool allow vistas unrivaled by any other hotel on the island. (http://totoco.com.ni/EN/inicio.html)
