Artisanal Fishing on Lake Nicaragua

During your stay at Jicaro you will notice fishermen in their wooden boats using fishing lines or nets to catch fish. Have you ever imagined yourself in such boat fishing in this mystical way? If your answer is yes, we invite you to be part of this unique experience where you’ll learn diverse techniques used in the artisanal fishing. You’ll float around the beautiful “isletas” in search of the perfect fish and learning from your captain about life on these little islands. If you catch a good fish like tilapia, snook or rainbow bass, you can bring it back home to the lodge and our Chef will be glad to prepare it for you.
