Granada - Hub of Nicaraguan Tourism

One of the highly fashionable locations for visitors to go when they travel to Nicaragua is the town of Granada. This little colonial township is a glimpse into history and what the land looked like after Europeans conquered the region. The city includes historic architecture built during the Spanish occupation and is nevertheless fascinating to look upon. The city has kept alive its old world uniqueness through the times. Nevertheless, it feels like a trip backwards through history and with locals assembling outside on their porches, the traditional European- inspired buildings and horse-drawn carriages walking around.

If you decide to vacation in Granada, be sure to take a minute to take in its innate attraction and culture. Journey to Lake Nicaragua, one of the largest lakes in Central America and spend time discovering its edge. The environmental charms about the lake and region in general, are stunning to pay a visit to and almost difficult to conceive. In addition to, the volcano peaks in the background provide a mysterious background to the region that adds to its mysticism. Go on a vacation up Volcano Mombacho, and be sure to tour the native colonial buildings, specially the cathedrals, and entrench yourself deep into the culture of the locals.

Granada is the fourth largest city in Nicaragua, with a population just over 191,000. It was started by Cordoba in 1524, and is one of the first communities constructed in the Americas. In spite of being the most historic and one of the larger communities in the nation, it remains unique because of its colonial architecture and ties to the western world. It is rapidly becoming the largest traveler destination in Nicaragua, which is helping the city develop and transform rapidly.
