This island looks like it’s straight out of a fairy-tale book.  It is made up of two volcanoes with a low lying strip of land in between them, sitting out in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, famous for freshwater sharks.


The adventurous ones can climb one or both volcanoes or you can just enjoy sitting lakeside and sipping on the famous Nicaraguan rum.  The lodging on the island is small and quaint and we love the yoga retreats with their own organic gardens and funky little casitas.
