Granada was, by far, my favorite place in Nicaragua. Yeah, I guess I’m a bit spoiled, and Granada is so more easier to like than everything else I visited in Nicaragua, so it is possible that if I had longer to linger and explore the rest and took more time to get used to things, I would have come to enjoy other parts as much. But, for now, for me, Granada is as good as it gets. Colonial feel, lots of attractions, wide selection of places to hang out, bars, pubs, and restaurants with great food from around the world. There are quick getaways that offer even more highlights, such as the Isletas de Granada, volcanos, strange run-down fort/jails, lots to see and explore.

I spent a few days in Granada, coming in and out, and I never got bored. Below is a photo summary some of the local Granada life, and the main attractions areas to explore.
