The Rio Indio Ecolodge was developed by a group of environmentally conscientious investors from North America, Nicaragua and Costa Rica who wanted to introduce this 1,600 sq. kilometer Indio Maíz World Heritage National Park to people that care about the environment and its pristine beauty. After a 2 ½ year environmental impact study, the carefully designed construction began using Nicaragua’s finest hand craftsmen, and wood from tree farms and reforestation programs. It took three years to build after surpassing many logistical problems of material transportation down the seasonal jungle rivers. Our goal was to create local jobs, operate a sustainable project and staff the lodge with local native people, mostly of the Rama tribe.
Each of the 27 cabins have been built on stilts over the jungle floor which allows for a canopy view of the river and Captain Morgan’s Lagoon. Measuring 700 square feet each, they have been constructed out of the wood from tree farms and using local craftsmen, the private and sophisticated rooms are very open and are outfitted with 2 comfortable queen-size beds, overhead fans, and a large, ornately-tiled bathroom. Additionally, each room has a screened-in deck, where you can relax and enjoy the amazing views of the water and the surrounding wildlife. Río Indio Lodge provides daily room service, fresh towels and, in case you forgot to bring them, complimentary shampoo and soap.
