Two Ways To Spend One Day In Granada, Nicaragua. Pt 2- Afternoon

Two Ways To Spend One Day In Granada, Nicaragua. Pt 2- Afternoon

Got one day to spare in beautiful Granada?

Mix it up a little with these great ways to spend one day in Granada, Nicaragua. Tour this impressive colonial city in the morning and by afternoon, cruise the volcanic islands of Lake Nicaragua. 

Next Stop- Isletas Tour

The islets of Granada sit just south east of the city in Lake Nicaragua; 356 small islands scattered along the Asese peninsula. The islands were formed thousands of years ago when Mombacho volcano erupted, scattering rocks large enough to pop a holiday home or restaurant on, along the scenic peninsula. Today you will find the holiday homes of Nicaragua’s prominent and elite, rustic restaurants and guest house accommodation, a local fishing community making a living around the islands, even a 17th century Spanish fort. This unique and idyllic group of islands has a varied and interesting blend of people, lifestyles and some very exciting up close wildlife experiences.

This a lovely, relaxing way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. Here is a look at life on the water along the Asese Peninsular known as The Isletas.

  • Sounds like a beautiful day. Those islets look beautiful. I enjoy your comment about popping a restaurant or holiday home on there. There’s a volcano that’s been erupting for a couple of years off the coast of one of the Canarian islands, which (when it first started) everyone joked would have a bar on by the end of the week.

  • Beautiful pictures, especially enjoyed the ones of the monkeys. It must of been a surreal experience riding down the river and seeing all the houses and the way people live along the way.
