I is for Las Isletas  or the islands.  Yes, that counts...las is just an article like a, an, the.

Las Isletas are a grouping of islands, some inhabited some vacant, that sit on Lake Cocibolca--the largest lake in Central America.  It's a beautiful lake full of wildlife including some amazing water fowl like pelicans.  It supposedly also has fresh water sharks although one hasn't been spotted in decades.  It's so nice to take a sunset cruise on the lake with a couple of Tona beers.  Ahhhh!  You can see homes of the who's who of Nicaragua and even visit a monkey island.  Yep, live monkeys who live on an island reserve will come up to your boat and eat.  Fun!  I highly recommend it.


  1. Beautiful photo! The monkeys sound like fun. I hope they are always friendly. :)
