Got one day to spare in beautiful Granada?
Mix it up a little with these great ways to spend one day in Granada, Nicaragua. Tour this impressive colonial city in the morning and by afternoon, cruise the volcanic islands of Lake Nicaragua.
Next Stop- Isletas Tour
The islets of Granada sit just south east of the city in Lake Nicaragua; 356 small islands scattered along the Asese peninsula. The islands were formed thousands of years ago when Mombacho volcano erupted, scattering rocks large enough to pop a holiday home or restaurant on, along the scenic peninsula. Today you will find the holiday homes of Nicaragua’s prominent and elite, rustic restaurants and guest house accommodation, a local fishing community making a living around the islands, even a 17th century Spanish fort. This unique and idyllic group of islands has a varied and interesting blend of people, lifestyles and some very exciting up close wildlife experiences.
This a lovely, relaxing way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. Here is a look at life on the water along the Asese Peninsular known as The Isletas.
An entire tiny island is populated with White Face and Spider Monkey’s.
An abundance of bird life that would keep any twitcher twitching!
