Stop at some of the inhabited islands to grab a bite at one of the restaurants and see different kinds of birds.

    A beautiful place, beautiful landscapes, beautiful people, take a tour boat by the almost 400 islets is wonderful, you can see monkeys, squirrels, birds, there are hotels and restaurants in many of the Islands!

    The lake itself is quite polluted. This would be an absolute paradise if cleaned up! The monkeys were super friendly at monkey island. It's worth the tour for sure!  more »

    Nice little trip in which shuts with a boat between small island groups in Nicaragua Lake through. There are about 350 Islands in the Lake. Most are in privately owned and with magnificent homes. The Lake was beautiful. It was disturbing that we made a needlessly long stop at a restaurant (this was also on a small island). Consider one that the whole boat ride lasted only about 1 h and stop at the restaurant about 20-30 min., which is really annoying. In addition, I found it inappropriate, (also the other boats made it & all fed the monkeys with sweet pastries)... thats how good it will be apparent that we drove as close to the island with the monkeys used in a few years if then on an island there are still monkeys. The trip is ok as a half day trip but you missed anything, if you waived.
