Granada in Nicaragua is practically a living museum, a picturesque colonial town nestled on the banks of Central America’s largest lake – this is one place you can’t afford to miss when travelling in Nicaragua! Granada also makes a perfect base for checking out the surrounding region, while offering a laid-back quiet vibe to return to every night for twilight snaps of cobblestoned streets or insta-worthy food.
