Jicaro Lodge | Owner, Karen Emanuel: Buying an Island, Our Mutual Love of Nicaragua, and Why You Must Visit

Released Wednesday, 25th November 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Today’s guest is Karen Emanuel, owner of Jicaro Lodge in Nicaragua. Jicaro is a stunning collection of 9 villas set on a tiny island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua near Granada.
To get to the island you’ve got to take a speedboat and until you’re right at the threshold, you can’t even tell it’s inhabited. When you step onto this isle of tranquility you’ll see the pool set amongst boulders shining in sapphire and emerald, the tropical gardens, and smell the fabulous food coming out of the open air kitchen and restaurant. Karen herself is the consummate entrepreneur - she is also the CEO of a successful vinyl pressing company in the UK and she tells the story about how she came to buy an island, in the middle of a lake, and commence on her journey to create something sustainably beautiful.
Karen and I also discuss thrilling activities in the area, Jicaro’s community projects, and why Nicaragua is a destination you NEED to visit.
Jicaro Lodge is currently fundraising for Nicaraguan families displaced by the two recent Category 4 hurricanes that hit the country. Check out their page to contribute HERE
