The colonial city of Granada, Nicaragua

Granada city has a number of places that are worth exploring. One of the best ways to explore the region is renting a bicycle to reach islets of Granada, located in Lake Nicaragua southeast of the city of Granada. 

What to do in Granada?

The locals told us that going alone to the islets of Granada is dangerous and it’s better to take an organized trip. In fact we felt no danger biking around.  We met a number of people instead selling trips around the islands. It was a great day trip although Nicaragua Lake turned to be quite usual and little stinky. Except wonderful wildlife, wild horses taking bath in the lake full of birds.

Granada is the oldest city on the continent and the most developed tourist destination in Nicaragua. The city is famous for its colonial architecture, amazing churches and cathedrals like tower at Iglesia de la Merced. Granda can also be a starting point for Masaya Volcano night trip.

Laguna de Apoyo – located a few kilometers outside of the city of Granada it’s also a nice idea of you like to do some swimming and scuba diving.
