Las Isletas

Isletas

Las Isletas are small islands just offshore from Granada in the Lago de Nicaragua.  Numbering into the hundreds and easily reached by motorboat from Granada, the isletas are seperated by narrow channels and rich with vegetation and wildlife, particulary egrets, herons and cranes.  Formed some 10,000 years by an erupting Volcán Mombacho, today many are inhabited by Nicaragua’s super-wealthy.  We spotted a ‘for sale’ sign and it seems the going rate for a small island in the lake is around $250,000.
