Driving time:
8 hours and 30 minutes
Flying time:
45 minutes


Old cities of antiquity are charming and always have a place in our hearts. Granada has all that and a bit more, its mysterious setting in the shadows of fiery Mombacho volcano and the cool blue waters of Lake Nicaragua.

Granada has a nostalgic romantic history, some of that still lives in things taken for granted such as its colorful horse carriages in operation since 1524. Parque central is a tree lined Plaza with benches and a lively crowd surrounded by colonial historical arquitectural buildings with wide verandas and passages. Colorful restored houses, coble stone alleys, charming hotels and coffee houses extend into the old town.

Walking is a pleasure here. You will see the bright blue church of San Francisco leaning against the ocher yellow Museo Antiguo Convento founded in 1529 . The museum is home to large pre-Colombian sculptures from Isla Zapaters in Lake Nicaragua . The Catedral de Granada with its immense towers and Dome is on Parque Central.

Lake Nicaragua has more than 400 islands, some 350 just offshore from Granada making them accessible with natural waterways to explore.

The proximity of Granada to Masaya artisan villages and natural sites makes it a good central staying area for exploring Southern Nicaragua.

NatureAir flights to Granada from San Jose , Costa Rica (55 Minutes) or Liberia (25 minutes) land just ten minutes from Parque Central in Granada .
