We opted to do a sunrise kayak tour of the islets and we had the perfect guide. We arranged this with our hostel and a taxi picked us up at 5am so we were in the kayak and on the water in time for sunrise....More

Definitely worth the 3-4 hours that the boat ride around the Isletas takes... walked the peninsula to see how the locals live there (very different from Granada itself). Also great for nature lovers!

We went with a guide to kayak around the islands. Our guide pointed out many different birds, and he knew all the plants and flowers. There are amazing lotus plants with flowers when we were there. We stopped on 1 island for drinks but they...More

We stayed at the Isla Zapango for the day. It was such a beautiful experience to see wildlife (cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, swallows, lily pads, etc.). We were in heaven!

There are a few ways to get the islet boat tours - you can walk from town (it is about 30 to 40 minutes) - simply walk down the main avenue, turn right when you reach the water, walk under the archway and keep going....More

We took a boat tour and it was ok. Beautiful surroundings and cute monkeys but the boat was crowded and the guide was uninspired. We saw people kayaking and we wished that we had done that as well. We played 10 dollars each for the...More

You should be able to negotiate a tour of any length. The guides seem more than happy to make a little more money.

You bring US. You can change your money at the bank or exchange from street corner vendors, they're pretty much at the same rate as banks. ATM's will give out one or the other, local or US.
