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.
