Have you ever dreamt of owning your own tropical island? Zopango gives you that experience for a bargain! Nestled in the lovely Asese Bay, Zopango is only 30 minutes away from Granada. Zopango Island, a member of the International Ecotourism Society and holder of the Tourism Excellence Award, was opened up to select small tourism groups in 2008. This trip to Zopango Island includes kayaking off the rugged coastline and swimming in the always-warm and calm waters in front of the stunning Mombacho Volcano.
You will feast on a famous fish BBQ accompanied by island-made juices, seasonal fruits, and coffee! Rest in one of the many hammocks and beach chairs on the largest sandy beach in all of Granada’s Isletas! Venture into the dense jungle in Zopango’s trails to enjoy the beautifully preserved lush environment and varied wildlife. You’ll even get to meet Cashew, Zopango’s favorite cheeky monkey! Zopango Island is truly a sustainable paradise that shouldn't be missed!
Bring a hat, sunscreen, a swimsuit and a towel
Originally from France, I started working as a guide in India and Europe after studying Tourism in Paris. I started a new career as a consultant in ecotourism in mainly french speaking areas such as Tunisia, Madagascar, and the french island La Reunion. My wife and I decided to come to Nicaragua ten years ago to start our own tours in Isletas de Granada. Here we developed the first and only Aquatic Tour focused on the protection of nature and local Island communities. We use electric-powered silent boats and special kayaks that we brought from France. We bought Zopango Island because we fell in love with it at first sight!
I am a nature lover who loves to show people how beautiful and wonderful Nicaragua is! I grew up surrounded by Nicaragua’s natural beauty in a community on the islets of Lake Cocibolca, where my whole family has lived and grown up. I knew since I very young that I wanted to help show travelers the beauty of my country, so I studied tourism when I went to university. I enjoyed studying tourism because I’ve always liked to explore and learn more about the places I am passionate about. I am proud of how beautiful Nicaragua is, and I love to show off the stunning features of this country of lakes and volcanoes to travelers.
