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 to see some nature and view some wildlife (mostly birds). I wouldn't say it's a "must-do" or that it was amazing, but I would recommend if you have a few days in Granada.

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 offer some different flora and birds but we were told that we would be able to feed the monkeys on "Monkey Island". We brought some bananas and imagined a large enough island for us to walk on and feed the monkeys. I'm sure for safety reasons (both for the monkeys and people) they just try to get the boat close so you can throw food to the 3 fat monkeys that live on the little island. Our tour also included a stop on an island with a restaurant but it just felt like they were trying to kill time. Overall - just okay.

Volcanoes, birds, boats, people, food?? You find all these and more in this place. Beautiful Marinas, fishing...
Pictures say more than words.

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 though we didn’t go on the motor boat tour I would say kayaking gets you closer to everything and I’m glad we decided to take that route. Our guide was also super nice, friendly and informative. We booked through Buena.

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 the islands was surprising, given the technical challenges (gotta wonder how the waste water is handled). Made an obvious statement about the super wealthy class ability to live on opulent islands while set apart from the serious mainland poverty just across the watery moat. Even made a stop at a small islet to observe monkeys that had been introduced there for some strange reason; sure they were happy to be there.
