This stunning tropical island is located in the Pearl Cays of Nicaragua, surrounded by crystal clear water and an abundance of fish and coral reefs. Baboon Cay is an 8-acre Private Island with a pristine natural habitat. Every effort is made to prevent contamination of the natural 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 unique and adventurous experience away from the routines of everyday life. 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 goal of solar and wind energy for the future!

Wildlife found on Baboon Cay
The area is favored as a nesting ground by the critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. During the breeding season, the World Wildlife Service monitors the areas with daily visits to the beaches, in order to protect the nests. With some luck, hatchlings can be spotted at night during the peak season of September through February!
