Touring the islands of Granada, Nicaragua is a fun adventure that is easy and inexpensive to do on any given day. Enjoy the fresh breezes that blow over Lake Cocibolca as you remember how awesome it is to live in the land of lakes and volcanoes.
Put your feet up while you motor through the 365 tropical islands (one for each day of the year they quip) that were born thousands of years ago out of the last eruption from the ever vigilant Mombacho Volcano that gives grandeur to Granada’s skyline.

You are in charge of your tour…
Tell your boat operator what you would like to do and they will adjust their itinerary and prices accordingly. You can stay in the boat and simply tour in and out of the islands looking out for abundant animal life and stopping in front of Spider Monkey Island and all the vacation homes of Who’s Who in Nicaragua. Or you can get off at one of the island restaurants and have some lunch and a restoring swim (in a pool) before you sail back to Granada.
How to get there: Hail a taxi and head down to Puerto Asese (10-15 cordoba per rider). Negotiate your fee with your captain before you set off. An hour tour can cost between $15-20 for the whole group, but expect to sweeten the deal if you are going to ask them to wait around while you lunch or swim.
