This stunning tropical Island is located in the Pearl Cays close to the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, surrounded by crystal clear water and an abundance of fish and coral. Baboon Cay is an 8-acre Private Island with a pristine natural habitat. Every effort is made to prevent contamination of the naturel flora and fauna. With this in mind, we provide our guests with natural biodegradable products and ask our guests to support our conservation efforts.
Our goal is to provide a rejuvenating experience away from the routines of everyday life that emulates the culture of the locals in the Pearl Cays. Through this philosophy, we provide minimal luxuries away from unnecessary technologies and materials. On Baboon Cay, there are only a few areas that have phone service and electricity is only available when our generator is on. We strive to be as energy efficient as possible with the objective of solar and wind energy for the future.

What is the expected climate?
The Pearl Cays are a low lying and humid, tropical climate, with dry and wet seasons. On Baboon Cay, we experience the dry season (less humid) from October to May, and the rainy season (humid) from June to September. Temperatures can range from 95 degree Fahrenheit ( 35 degrees Celsius) in the summer wet season with the lowest temperatures of 73 degrees Fahrenheit (23 degrees Celsius) in the winter dry season.
We recommend visiting Baboon Cay during the dry season as temperatures are not too high and the humidity levels are low.
Wildlife found on Baboon Cay
The area is favored as a nesting ground by the critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. During the breeding season, this process is monitored by the World Wildlife Service by daily visits to the beaches in order to monitor and protect the nests. With some luck, hatchlings can be spotted at night during the peak season of September through February! A variety of bird-life make their home in the Cays, including a family of Pelicans, who feast on the schools of sardines that inhabit the shallow reef waters. Huge Frigate birds can often be seen soaring high above the island and native doves can be heard cooing in the mangroves. Other wildlife includes Mangrove Crabs and bright blue Ghost Crabs that become active at night. The Reef partially surrounding the Cay is home to diverse marine species.
