Solentiname Islands is in Nicaragua on the Southeastern corner of Lake Nicaragua.
The Solentiname Archipelago is situated in the south of Lake Nicaragua near San Carlos in the Rio San Juan Region. The islands are really remote - don't expect things like grocery stores etc. On the Isla Mancarrón is a little Pulperia with the most necessary stuff. There are 36 Islands but just a handful are inhabited. The biggest Islands are Mancarrón and San Fernando.
The only way onto the islands is by boat. Private boats can be chartered for around $100 per day. Otherwise collective boats leave from a pier in San Carlos near the current construction along the seawall. The schedule is San Carlos to Solentiname Tuesday and Friday 1pm for C$80 and returning the same days at 4:30am for the same price. You might be lucky and find someone from the island running around in San Carlos and giving you a ride to the islands.
There is still some intact nature on the islands even though the people do farm the land. There are petroglyphs on the islands.
Isla San Fernando:
Visit the Museums on the main Islands.
There are no worries about safety on these small islands.
Tuesday and Friday at 4:30 am.
