Granada Things to Do: 181 reviews and 524 photos

In Lago Cocibolca there are 365 small islands, which were formed about 10000 years ago, when Volcán Mombacho erupted. There are many tours to the islands. One day when I was walking in the market and trying to take photos a man came to me and offered a tour of two hours on the lake. "$25 only for you" he said. I wasn't interested at that time, because I wanted to concentrate on photosgraphy and had other plans. Another day I popped in Hostal Central and booked a tour there at $15, which included a tour in San Francisco Church and Convent (museum), three-hour-tour on the lake and two-hour walking tour in town. As I have created a tip about the museum already I am not going to tell about it here. There were only three of us, a young German couple and I. We took a covered boat to the lake and our guide told us about the history and present of the lake.
