Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America








To get to the boat you have to wade out into the lake. On the boat I was rather surprised that they made me wear a life jacket. This is the same country that will let you climb into an active volcano but if you ride in a boat you need to wear a life jacket. Nicaragua isn't real consistent in their safety regulations...

The trees in the pictures below were filled with giant nests. I'm not really sure what kind of nests they are. Neither of my mates on the boat spoke English and I wasn't understanding what they were telling me in Spanish. Anyway, I thought they were cool looking even though I'm not real sure what they are.

In the photo and video below with the yellow house you can see a monkey in the tree. Also, if you're looking for your own island this is the place. Several of them are for sale. I think the prices start at around $400,000 so bring your checkbook.

The tour of the isletas lasted about 2 hours and was much better than I was expecting. Some of the homes are amazing and there are some hotels on the isletas as well. It's definately one of the best surprises I've ever had on any of my trips.
