Granada, Nicaragua, is a large colonial town located midway through the country along the shores of Lake Nicaragua. Granada has a fascinating history of colonialism, rebellion, and scandal. The streets are littered with bright colours; Spanish-influenced architecture; and free museums on topics ranging from coffee, chocolate, history, and art. There are many volcanoes in the nearby region and many companies offer tours that range from quick day hikes to weekend camping trips. The downtown strip offers impressive cuisine and exciting nightlife, making this a great place for all different people and paces.

Getting to and from Granada is easy, as it's a large city in the middle of the country and most shuttles and buses start, end, or stop in Granada. Getting around is no problem either, as taxis and tuk-tuks are abundant and rather inexpensive. Make sure to walk in the markets and churches for an authentic and beautiful look into Nicaraguan culture.

As in other large and touristy cities, hostels in Granada are abundant and research is definitely required, as they range from beautiful hostels with gardens and pools to those in which you feel like crammed sardines in a can.

I visited this great city and I loved it!

Allen Crew

This is a great city, great food. It is seriously hot. Glue-sniffing kids and thieves abound, but it's a must-see anyway.


If in Granada, a must see is Laguna de Apoyo -- a crystal clear lake in a volcanic crater. Plan to spend a night -- it's a great time.

Richard Hewitt

Granada is a great city!
