  • Apparently it is a little visited place but I recommend it! Super interesting to know the history of the island from its archaeological pieces and not can go unnoticed the Nicaraguan currency Museum. At the end of the Tour you offered provide the liquor typical of the island. Unforgettable experience!

  • The museum was small, but all the ceramics were founds on the ground of this island. Excellent evidence of the nicaraguan indians. 
  • The Museum offers a guided tour through the history of the currency of Nicaragua and all the variations and change that has had over the years and then another historical tour of the island and their ancestors which is very interesting.
