Islets of Granada, Granada

4.2
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.

    Visiting the islets by the side of Granada it's ideal to make a little physical activity activity, you're boat calmly appreciating the landscape. That Yes, I recommend you go with a guide so that you have about the place and people who currently live in them, there are several agencies that make these tour that are on the road. I chose a tour of 10 dollars that lasted three hours and included a stop (1 hour), and the journey Guide to a restaurant on one of the islets (lunch not included). That if they do not allow you download to any island except for the restaurant, all are privately owned, so you see them for long. There is one in which there is a herd of 5 monkeys approximately, which fall on the edge of the boat so that you give it food. I recommend to people wanting a more physical experience, which do so in kayak (do not know their price) but also go with a guide.
