Beautiful place! I highly recommend to rent a kayak in Terazza Las Palmas ( they have way better prizes than offices in town) and make a self guided tour through the small "Hijas de Mombacho". We had an amazing day there

Excellent boat tour of Isletas de Granada! We saw 35 species of birds, 3 types of monkeys, and learned this history about the volcanic islands. Vladimir took us on a 3 hour customized tour that was one of the highlights of our month long stay...More

The boat tour of Las Isletas is a fun way to spend an afternoon or morning. The trip lasts as long as you like and you pay for the time you choose. Most of the little islands are privately owned, some have restaurants, little hotels...More

It’s all great activity with children, we brought our 18 months son and didn’t have any problem. He loved it. Great to have the guide telling about the rich owners of the island and stop by monkey island !

We’ve rented kayaks to paddle around the Isletas de Granada. There are hundreds of islands, and we probably just saw a few dozen, but we felt it was pretty much the same after a while: Hotels/Bars and fancy houses for rich people on rock islands....More

You should be able to negotiate a tour of any length. The guides seem more than happy to make a little more money.

You bring US. You can change your money at the bank or exchange from street corner vendors, they're pretty much at the same rate as banks. ATM's will give out one or the other, local or US.
