Getting to Guacimo Ecolodge

Guacimo River Lodge is located within 50 hectares of primary and secondary forest in the Indio Maiz Biosphere Reserve buffer zone in the south of Nicaragua. It is only accessible by water, but we can help you in this adventure so you can take the hustle out and focus on enjoying the way.

If you are travelling with your own vehicle you will need to reach San Carlos. The trip provides great views of Lake Nicaragua and the road is in excellent condition. San Carlos dock has ample parking space.

There are over 6 daily public boat transfers from San Carlos to El Castillo. This a nice river ride and a good way to observe the communities along the San Juan. A Guacimo Lodge representative will pick you up in El Castillo dock at the time of your arrival and take you by private boat to our Lodge.

If you need assistance with your transfer, we can arrange private car or boat transportation from any point in Nicaragua. If you come from Costa Rica, we provide a meet & greet service at Las Tablillas border together with a 1hr 30min private boat river transfer to Guacimo Lodge.
