The Islets of Granada in Granada, Nicaragua is a must see! Our 7 year old son absolutely loved the tour around the Islets. We saw monkeys and so many birds during the tour. The tour guide was a local Spanish speaker and he would narrate throughout the entire tour. He was extremely friendly and personable. There's so much to see: the locals who live on the Islets, private islands, wildlife, restaurants, and so much more. Make sure to bring some fruits with you if you can, so you can hand it to the monkeys! Tips are voluntary for most tours, but they are much appreciated. A recommendation, talk to people for the best price for a tour. We paid $35 for 3 people; the $35 included private car service to and from our hotel as well as the tour. That pans out to a little over $10 a person which isn't all that bad. We were recommended from a English speaking guide in the "Central Parque". Some guides will charge you extremely expensive prices, so shop around.

A slow boat between the islets made it possible to spot so many birds - Osprey, kingfishers, egrets, cattle and greater, snail hawk, water fowl, herons and a few rescued spider monkeys. They are now well looked after and live on their own islet. The homes on some of these isle are truly impressive - moorings, jet skis, motor cruisers etc. A very worthwhile trip

There are right at 365 little island that surround the whole peninsula. I’ve personally been paddle boarding around these islands for years. Lots of beautiful homes, nice hotels, and wildlife to see. Best to explore In boat, paddle boarding, or kayak. Very large area. If you had a week you couldn’t see all of them.

This was one of the most memorable parts of our trip. The boat ride was the perfect speed to enjoy the magical surroundings of The Islets of Granada. Each little island was covered in lush tropical vegetation and had a unique house, restaurant or lodging on it. I would love to spend an entire week on one of these little islands. So much wildlife, from birds to iguanas and even monkeys on these Islets. It was truly magical

Did the boat trip while in Granada and had a real laugh while doing so. Our boat man was great at spotting birds and therefore we saw quite a few ! Kingfishers, herons and other species. Was good value for money but you cant always bet on wildlife of course. Would recommend as something different to do if in Granada. We were there on the 2nd of March.
