Granada - Hub of Nicaraguan Tourism

One of the most popular spots for foreigners to travel when they travel to Nicaragua is the town of Granada. This little colonial town is a glimpse into history and what the country looked like once Europeans occupied the area. The metropolis is surrounded by historic construction built at some stage in the Spanish occupation and is still captivating to look upon. The city has continued its old world character throughout the centuries. Yet, it feels comparable to a step backwards in time and with residents sitting outside on their porches, the traditional European- inspired structures and horse-drawn carts walking about.

If you decide to vacation in Granada, be certain to take a minute to take in its innate splendor and society. Go to Lake Nicaragua, one of the largest lakes in Central America and spend time discovering its edge. The natural charms in this area of the lake and area as a whole, are impressive to see and almost difficult to conceive. Combined with, the volcano peaks in the background provide a mysterious background to the area that enhances its mysticism. Take a trip up Volcano Mombacho, and be certain to visit the native colonial buildings, particularly the cathedrals, and entrench yourself deep into the society of the residents.

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 colonies established in the Americas. Despite being the oldest and one of the larger cities in the country, it remains unique because of its colonial construction and ties to the western world. It is promptly turning out to be the largest traveler destination in Nicaragua, which is helping the city mature and modernize quickly.
