According to the agency, the most popular requested day trip is the Granada City Tour. You'll see why a visit to Nicaragua is incomplete without stopping in Granada, a city filled with of history and culture. A short boat ride from Granada, Jicaro Island Ecolodge is known as one of Nicaragua's most upscale nature resorts. Set on a private island in Lake Nicaragua, this quiet respite is the ideal place to unwind and detach. Jicaro has spectacular views of the Mombacho Volcano and is surrounded by hundreds of tiny islands. We love that the resort is the only thing on the island, making it the ultimate in luxurious seclusion. Nine private casitas serve as the perfect setting for romantic escapes or group wellness retreats. Further down the coast and only 30 minutes from Costa Rica is the Pelican Eyes Resort and Spa in the charming fishing village of San Juan del Sur. During your stay, arrange for a trip on one of Pelican Eyes' sailboats and explore the southern Pacific coastline aboard a 41-foot sloop. A full-day sailing trip includes swimming and beachcombing in the hidden Nicaraguan coastal bays of Brazilito and Costa Blanca, lunch served on a deserted beach, and wine and cheese at sunset. Also nearby is the Hacienda & Ecolodge Morgan's Rock, which consists of 15 bungalows on a forested hill sloping toward the ocean. Be sure to include a farm- style breakfast in your stay; from collecting your own eggs to milking a cow, the experience is truly memorable. But, we must warn you: Once you taste the freshness of the farm-to-table food, you'll begin to crave it.
