Holy Week is a time of great solemnity, respect and religious activities for the Catholic people in which the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is revived. In each town, municipality and department of the country in particular, religious acts are carried out, which carry their own and traditional traits.

"The tradition goes back to 1980 when the pastor Omar Cordero of the Church of Guadalupe saw the need for the islanders to participate in the traditional viacrucis, which is why he chose to move the tradition in an aquatic way. At first it was done in rowing boats, which year after year has increased and to date has reached great popularity," said Juan Ramon Estrada, tour guide of the Nicaraguan Institute of Culture (INC).
The particular thing of this activity lies beyond the route of Jesus in boat,
"because in each one of the boats recreate scenes of the holy writings in which children and young people assume the leading roles of Herod, Jesus and Maria, doing the activity. A great attraction during the week, which is attended by both domestic and foreign tourists. From the Nicaraguan Institute of Tourism (INTUR) we coordinate with the pastor of the Guadalupe Church to carry out this event in which we have 40 boats where free of charge is transferred to tourists, who enjoy our religious culture. The tour lasts four hours and most of the viacrucis is carried out by the islanders, "said Mayling Gutiérrez, of INTUR-Granada.
During the event, the INC together with INTUR reward the best boats, which are decorated by the locals, who give their best in this initiative that also promotes the Islets of Granada as a tourist destination.
