Islets of Granada, Granada

4.4
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.

  • It is an excellent idea to go on Tour, islets are very nice and there is a restaurant in one of them, the prices are affordable. Good choice!

  • As grenadine, I have visited the Islands for years. And I've discovered that in each trip you learn something new. History, nature, social, etc.

  • My boyfriend and I rented two kayaks directly at the Cabaña Amarilla port (about US $ 15 for 2-3 hours) and we walked alone through Las Isletas. It's been an absolutely peaceful and beautiful ride. We have seen all kinds of birds and even the monkeys! If you like kayaking and nature, I highly recommend it! Not necessary to take a guide.

  • Great place to spend a couple hours on a boat touring the islands. See interesting historical sites and enjoy the views! Make sure to see the old fort and the monkeys!
  • They are good because they helped me in a school project
  • Great place to spend your vacations in Nicaragua. This is one of the most beautiful places in this country with a great variety of animals and plants.
  • The stunning islets of Granada originated product of a volcanic eruption. If you are interested in getting to know them just go to the port of the colonial city of Granada and take a boat tour. There are different providers of the tourist service.
