What a fun tour! The boat holds a dozen or more tourista. Bring nuts to feed the monkeys which if the boat driver let's you you can feed right from the bow of the boat. The monkeys can be picky cause they're smart so if you bring trail mix theyll carefully pick out their favorites hahahha! The trip lasts a... More

We took a boat or yup the isletas and ate at one of the island restaurants. So beautiful. Have "Carmen" take you out to the boat on her horse and buggy from Parque Central for about $15U.S..

We had a wonderful time visiting las isletas de Granada. We come from Spain and have never seen anything like this. Worth the visit

We explored the islets on the southern side of Peninsula de Aseses. We hired a boat at Villas Mombacho restaurant, and it was available to take us within just a few minutes. The cost was $20 for 5 of us, and worth every penny. Our guide lived on one of the islets and so had first-hand knowledge, though I should... More

I recommend the boat tour of the Las Isletas, a nice break to view birds and other wildlife. It is a much cooler experience than wandering through the city. The tour can include lunch or a snack at a restaurant and feeding monkeys.

Huge disappointment. We asked for an English speaking guide that knew birds. We got neither. Our guide knew the word "bird" and could point. He also liked to try to scare the birds into flight. Luckily, he had little success. The kayaks were old, heavy and difficult to maneuver. The lake was windy. One of us had difficulty navigating it... More

The waters around the Islets of Granada are alive with aquatic birds as well at land based birds. Also sighted were white faced monkeys and long nosed bats. The bats were extremely had to see since they looked just like the tree bark until you were able to pick out the eyes and then you could pick out the wings... More

Taking a panga ride through the isletas allows you to see a lot of amazing birds. We stopped at Monkey Island and saw some monkeys, and stopped at an island bar for a quick snack and beverage.

You can take about an hour's boat ride amongst the many small islets - interesting views of local life and some nice birdlife.
