Being a professional travel photographer, visiting luxury resorts all over the world, it’s hard to be impressed by new destinations. This place, however, goes directly to the top ten list of kickass destinations I have been to. To balance luxury and sustainability is a really hard task, and most high-end luxury resorts need to understand the importance of it. Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a leading star and other hotels, resorts and lodges should follow their fantastic environmental work.
