Create an itinerary including Islets of Granada
Islets of Granada represents an archipelago created when the nearby volcano's cone was strewn across the lake thousands of years ago. The small islands have since become covered with vegetation and are a haven for birdlife. Today many of the islands have houses, hotels, and shops on them. Take a boat tour or hire kayaks and sail around the area, observing monkeys and wading birds. You'll stop off at certain islets for refreshments and a swim. Consider bringing some fruit along to feed the monkeys. Using our world travel planner, Granada attractions like Islets of Granada can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Spent two hours cruising round the islands, great views and an interesting insight into island life on Lake Nicaragua.

  • Beautiful islands off the coast of Granada. We took a boat tour to see the different islands and it is definitely recommended if you are anywhere near. Our favorite island was the one that a Veterinarian bought a long time ago in order for the local monkey population to live in. It was great learning about the history of the Islands and who owns which one. Will definitely love to do this tour again if we are ever back in Nicaragua.
  • From our hostel we could book the tour for 15$ and it was great! We were the only two in the boat and our guide, Lorenzo was amazing, telling us about the islands and local wildlife. The hightlight was monkeys jumping aboard the ship, just an all around amazing experience.
