Isleta El Espino: Your Private Island Getaway

Location: Lake Nicaragua, Nicaragua
From: $213 per night

Relax and rejuvenate and your own private island in Nicaragua. Because this pristine resort is the only premises on the island, shortly after arriving you can’t help but slip into total vacation mode. Even the word resort is slightly exaggerated: there are only three rooms—or more precisely cabanas—but in return, the staff personally look after the guests, fulfilling their every wish.

Regenerative Impact

Isleta El Espino a dream come true, regenerating the environment as much as the guests who visit. The entire resort is self-sustainable and powered by solar panels, minimizing its environmental impact. You’ll be able to quench your thirst with filtered lake water, and savor the taste of Nicaragua with cuisine made from the island’s gardens and trees. The chic cabanas have been designed to enhance the tropical flora, allowing the island’s natural beauty to shine through.


Take some time for yourself on the island, practicing morning yoga or even learning how to make chocolate from the world-famous Nicaraguan cocoa beans.

  • Yoga and spa treatments
  • Kayaking and fishing
  • Nature tours
  • Zip lining
  • City walking tours
  • Artisan village tours
  • Volcano tour
