Pick up at the International airport in Managua. Transfer to Granada for your first night in Nicaragua.
Founded in 1524 Granada is the oldest colonial city on the Isthmus; that heritage adds to the charm and character of the place today. Today's Granada is a delightful town, it's streets are lined with Spanish-style houses with large wooden doors opening onto cool interior patios. A wonderful walking city, although some buildings appear to be on the verge of collapse, many others have been beautifully renovated and now function as restaurant, hotel, or residential home. A great way to get a nice overview of the city is by ascending the towers of the La Merced church.
