|Las Isletas are small volcano islets 'created' thousands of years ago by Volcano Mombacho after one of the erruptions caused the North East wall to collapse into the lake. There are over 360 small islands - most of them covered with lush green vegetation. Some of the islets are big enough for just one family home others even smaller and not populated at all.|
One island - one family home!
