Nicaraguan Travel and Must-See Granada

One of the highly popular places for visitors to go when they visit Nicaragua is the town of Granada. This little colonial settlement is a glimpse into antiquity and what the area appeared as after Europeans conquered the area. The city contains colonial architecture constructed all through the Spanish occupation and is nonetheless fascinating to look upon. The city has maintained its quaint uniqueness throughout the years. Yet, it feels similar to a step back in time and with locals sitting outside on their terraces, the classic European- style buildings and horse-drawn carts strolling around.

If you decide to vacation in Granada, be certain to take time to take in its natural beauty and culture. Go to Lake Nicaragua, one of the biggest lakes in Central America and spend time traveling around its outskirts. The environmental attractions in this area of the lake and region in general, are striking to see and almost impossible to imagine. In addition to, the volcano peaks in the background offer a mysterious background to the region that enhances its mysticism. Go on a trip up Volcano Mombacho, and be certain to visit the native colonial buildings, particularly 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 founded by Cordoba in 1524, and is one of the first colonies built in the Americas. Despite being the most historic and one of the larger communities in the country, it remains rare because of its colonial architecture and connections to the western world. It is rapidly becoming the largest traveler destination in Nicaragua, which is helping the city grow and modernize rapidly.
