Granada and Islets One-day tour
During the tour, you will visit La Merced Church, from where you will have a great panoramic view of the city. Then, we will visit the Museum at San Francisco Convent. This museum offers a nice collection of historical objects, paintings, and statues. One of its most interesting collections are the 28 Pre-Columbian statues from Zapatera Island. These statues date from 800 to 1200 AD. Other expositions display archaeological findings and other objects that tell you more about Nicaragua’s history. The museum is in a colonial house with a beautiful inner courtyard.
Next, you will embark on a boat tour of Granada’s famous Isletas, an archipelago of more than 300 tiny tropical islands. While you listen to your guide’s commentary about the history of Lake Nicaragua, admire views of Mombacho Volcano and keep an eye out for native birds like tanagers, hawks, jays and warblers.
