G is for Granada.

Classic Granada and carriage for tour or just plain help to get from A to Z

Colonial courtyard.  Classic of Granada colonial architecture

Ahhhh, the city in which I live and my new home.  Granada claims to be the oldest city in Central America funded in 1524 if I remember correctly.  As most Central American history goes, it was conquered by the Spanish.  Their influence is still highly obvious in boulevards, architecture, and well, language.

What's some fun things to do in Granada?  Here's some suggestions:

  • Tuesdays at 10 a.m. take a home tour which leaves from Centro del Arte.  See some fabulous colonial homes both original and renovated.
  • Take a horse/carriage ride and negotiate negotiate your price.  They leave from Central Park and are available in English.  A leisurely way to learn about Granada history and sites.
  • Mombacho volcano is right outside Granada as is
  • The Isletas (islands) tour....365 islands in beautiful Lake Cocibolca

Come see us!


  1. I love Granada! Don't forget if you don't believe it just come and see for yourself!

  2. Beautiful! Sounds like so much fun. Thanks for sharing!
