Nicaragua Day 7 (Day) – Volcano Explosion Islands

A long time ago in a 3rd world country far, far away Volcan Mombacho blew her lid and spewed tons of molten rock into Lake Nicaragua.

When the violence ended and the ripples calmed, Las Isletas, the 300 island addition was born.

On one of our last days in Nicaragua, we chartered a boat and explored a section of these islands. The trip was part everglades…part Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney…part lifestyles of the rich and famous.

One minute you’re wallowing through a swamp. The next locals are wading through the muck looking for a meal. And then you round the corner to see a 3,000 sq foot island with a two story mansion, pool and speedboat.

Worth the trip. Here’s a little video.
