Could’ve done a group tour with guide for $100, or a private boat without guide for $50, but opted for private boat with guide for $140. Totally not worth it. Guide was very nice, but was only able to point at a few houses and...More

The Islets were a nice way to spend a few hours while staying in Granada. We walked to the launch area and negotiated with a couple boat captains directly to fit our timing and interests (knowing some Spanish definitely helped!). It was a fun way...More

Maybe my expectations were a little too high. My family and I have been lucky enough to travel some beautiful islets in the Thousand Islands in Canada and live on the coast of British Columbia with spectacular islands. The Islets of Granada are nice and...More

What a relaxing way to get out on the water and learn more about Nicaragua. We saw birds, a tree snake, howler monkeys and had a monkey come onto our kayak when we visited the island. Wear a lot of GOOD sunscreen and enjoy. Even...More

We made a brief boat tour of the Islets of Granada as part of our Mardigi Tours all-day excursion into Nicaragua from our Costa Rica lodgings. Temperatures were in the mid-90's so getting out on the water was both interesting and refreshing. The development on...More

If you are in Granada, I really recommend getting out on the lake. We stayed on an island and had serveral rides to and from land. It is great to see how beautiful the area is from the water.

We did this trip independently but I’m not sure if it was any cheaper than booking it through our hotel. We went to the boat area by taxi and negotiated a trip for an hour with one of the boatmen there. The trip was very...More

The Islets tour leaves from the city of Granada, which is about 45 minutes from Managua by taxi.

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.
