My friends and I went on a small little boat tour of the islets. It was nice to see the nature, the monkeys, the different places on the islets. I am glad we got to see the islets before they start building on this lake.

Great boat tour around a group of islands formed from the eruption of the Mombacho volcano, many of which are inhabited historically by the very poor, to more recently by some of the richest families in the country as holiday homes. Lots of birds for great photography and one island has 4 monkeys (2 spider, 2 capuchin) as an added... More

Boat ride through islands with really cool houses on each of them. Would like to stay in one for the night. That would be cool!

There isn't a ton to do in Granada so this was a nice way to fill an afternoon. Take the later tour so you can see the end of the day.

We went with Erick tours for a 3-hr tour and had a knowledgeable English guide. Fun to do, even if I was expecting to see more wildlife. We saw monkeys on the island plus a few birds.

We hired a local boat owner to take us around the isletas for 2 hours. It was amazing to see the island mansions, restaurants, and wild life!

We loved kayaking through the islets. It was peaceful and full of wildlife. Lots of bird sightings. We didn't like the monkeys on monkey island. Seemed exploitive and unnecessary.
