Granada, Nicaragua

See our Guru's list of the best places to stay in Granada

Elegant colonial beauty, Granada offers postcard worthy views on each turn of a corner.  There are wonderful churches, pastel coloured buildings along cobblestoned streets and two charming ports - one onto the Atlantic Ocean via Lake Nicaragua and one on the San Juan River.  The best places to stay in Granada have often been converted from some of Granada’s best preserved and most beautiful colonial architecture.  

Granada is also a great base for exploring the local countryside, where you’ll discover a coastline of pristine, and fun, beaches, a spectacular clear turquoise lake, Lake Apoyo, and a volcanic interior complete with hot springs, walking trails and a butterfly sanctuary.  If you’re looking for the best places to stay in Granada to relax and recharge then the lodges along the lake’s shore are a great place to start looking.  

Granada’s unmissable highlights include the Iglesia La Merced, a landmark church built in 1534, the lavishly turreted Fortaleza La Polvora, an 18th Century Spanish fortress, the Plaza of Independence, the city’s great markets in their neoclassical building, the Nicaragua Butterfly reserve and the Museo de Chocolate.
