Around Granada: Monkey Island

How hard is it to go to the monkeys island? Must one have a guide to do so or can one just kayak there? Is it permitted to enter the island or interact with monkeys or can one only view them from far away?

The island is very small, not even a quarter of an acre. There are a half dozen or so monkeys there, quite aware that the next boat will likely bring them tourists and bananas. There is no close-hand interaction with the monkeys, though typically you might only be 10 feet or so from them as you sit in the boat. While the monkeys add to the visit of the isletas, a guide will also point out some of the prominent peoples' homes as you cruise through the waterways of this unique colony of 350 small islands. You can also do a guided kayak tour. Doing it alone is probably not feasible nor advisable. The cost of the isleta tour is quite reasonable.
