Nicaragua’s ISLETA EL ESPINO, PRIVATE ISLAND RESORT
Nicaragua has many private islands in the Isletas of Granada. This is just one resort of many that you can hang your hat on for a couple days of ultimate relaxation. A place on the islands can be rented for as little as $100 and up. Fill up a couple coolers of food and drink, hire one of the local panga boats, and enjoy your own private island for a day or 2.
By the time I reached the marina on Cocibolca Lake, I had been in Nicaragua long enough to feel its courting take, but I still could not put my finger on the deep connection I felt to this new place. As my feet left the mainland, and we loaded up the small boat that would take me to my island paradise, I felt a slip from one world into another. Suddenly in a world where everything and everyone relies on the lake to transport them from one piece of steady ground to the next. As the boat whizzed along I found myself surrounded by little islands, and off in the distance I could see their mother. The beautifully choreographed jungle habitat, lush wherever it could thrive, was an incredible contrast to the water life and its shiny reflection. While I had a good idea of the plan ahead, I had no idea Isleta El Espino, a private island eco-resort near Granada in Nicaragua was going to be as magical as it was.
