Weddings + Events on Isleta El Espino

Thank you for considering Isleta El Espino as the venue for your wedding or event. We would be honored to host your special day and assist you in planning every aspect of the event, ensuring that you and your guests can relax and fully enjoy the celebration.

At Isleta El Espino, we can accommodate up to 45 guests on the island for your event, with five guest rooms available to accommodate a total of 10 guests for overnight stays (13 with extra beds). Our location is incredibly convenient, just a short 10-minute drive from the center of Granada and a 10-minute boat ride from Marina Cocibolca. To make your transportation seamless, we provide boat transfers to and from the event, with the cost determined based on the size of your group.

Our menu showcases a selection of dishes crafted using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, many of which are grown right here on the island. Upon arrival, your guests will be treated to our house-made juices and hors d'oeuvres. For the main meal, you can choose between plated table service or a buffet, both offering a variety of starters, main dishes, and a dessert (please note that the wedding cake is not included). We take care of all necessary rentals, including tables, seating, place settings, barware, and provide a dedicated staff to ensure a seamless experience throughout the event.

If you choose to reserve all rooms for three or more nights, we are pleased to offer a 10% discount on the room rates for the entire duration of your stay.

We offer a range of additional services at an extra cost, including floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception (priced between US $200 and $500), musicians such as a solo guitarist or a latin music trio (ranging from US $500 to $1200 for three hours), as well as car or micro-bus transfers within Nicaragua.
