“A good, touristy tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

You can snag a boat tour of the Islets and see the little islands formed by volcanic eruption. It's not very expensive and it's a good way to see the islands. Many well-to-do Nicas have houses on the islands and they are cool to see.

There is a small island with a bar and pool that you'll probably stop at to have a beer, lunch or soft drink. This is the kind of place I'd like to retire to!

We stopped at Monkey Island and a monkey jumped on our boat. It fell in love with my 8 year old's long hair and jumped on his head and started trying to pick bugs out of his head like in a Jane Goodall video. Highlight of the trip.

Contact a guy named Rodolfo Ortega (roldolfo.nicaragua@hotmail.com) and he can help you organize any trip you want.

“See monkey island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This was a pleasant, mellow trip to see all the cute little islands and the monkey island. Make sure to tell the boat driver to go by it and get some fun pictures.

“Small Islands Built by Volcanos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The boat tour of several islands was both enjoyable and educational. Some islands are beautifully decorated with private homes and businesses open to the public. Check out monkey island and the island dedicated as a cemetery. Many locals living on the islands rarely go to the mainland. The school bus for children is a boat; how cool is that

“great views of Volcan Mombacho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

we took the longer boat tour, both sides of the peninsula, so saw the tiny islands inhabited by long-time residents, mostly fishers, as well as those with much fancier houses of the Nicaraguan elite (and some Americans). Super picturesque and pleasant.
