“Nice and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Some people might go in with very high expectations, especially if they have visited other places surrounded by nature, so they can be dissapointed. Guides claim they will show you mansions, but they are just nice houses. However, it's interesting to know about how the islands were formed and how they are being used. The Fort and the island with monkey are the highlights of the tour. In all, it's entertaining, and a good way to spend a couple of hours. Dont' pay more than $20 per person and don't settle for less than 80 to 90 minutes.

“Nice trip from Granada”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We took a one hour boat trip to the charming group of islands just in front of the city of Granada. It was nice to be on the water, and to see the islands. Granada being quite small, I would recommend taking a boat tour. However, keep in mind that it is basically a lot of tiny islands with large villa's on them. The highlight is probably the tiny island with monkeys. If there are not too many boats circling it, you might be able to feed a monkey a banana as they tend to come close to the boats. (Don't forget to bring them!)

“Las Isletas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Get away from the heat of Granada onto the water - it's fun to go in a little boat past all of the islands - some with simple homes and some with very fancy ones - I recommend late afternoon before sunset - we saw a lot of birds.

“Great boat ride!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Would recommend this activity...especially to family's. The monkeys and private island are all fun to look at. Even get to stop for a cold beverage along the way!
