Introducing Granada & Around
Granada is Nicaragua at its most photogenic, a city of graceful adobes and elegantly proportioned porticoes drenched in rich tropical colors, Volcán Mombacho rising ragged above and shimmering Cocibolca (Sweet Sea; Lago de Nicaragua) arranged at her feet. But the beauty overlooking the lake is more than just a pretty facade: behind the city's carved wooden doors, arranged around beautifully restored courtyards, you'll find an eclectic bar and restaurant scene, wonderful hotels and other little luxuries that offer a taste of Nicaragua's historic wealth and power.
This Spanish colonial masterpiece, arguably the oldest European city on the American mainland, has become the epicenter of a lively expat scene that has furnished its new home with creature comforts from sushi to a Reiki massage. So put away the water purification tablets, slip into your nicest (or cleanest) clothes and flag down one of the horse-drawn carriages plying the city's lively boulevards, and just enjoy.
