Granada Travel Guide - Nicaragua

Located on the edge of Lake Cocibolca - one of the world's biggest lakes - and a mere stone's throw from the impressive Mombacho Volcano is the historic city of Granada.

Once inhabited by Nicaragua's indigenous Xalteva tribe, Granada - now a city of roughly 116,000 - was founded by Spaniards in 1524. The elegant and cheerfully-painted colonial architecture flanking Granada's historic streets speak volumes about the city's rich colonial heritage. In fact, picturesque Granada is the oldest city in the western hemisphere and widely considered one of the most beautiful. With its quaint colonial air, it's not hard to see why visitors quickly fall under Granada's spell. However, Granada's diverse natural surroundings are every bit as fascinating as the city itself. The nearby and easily accessible Mombacho Volcano provides a wealth of hiking, exploring and sightseeing opportunities, and the massive Lake Cocibolca is home to an archipielago of over 300 islands!

Granada is a multi-faceted city that has recently seen a welcome surge of tourism. Each year, more and more travelers from around the world discover the colonial charm, the historical importance and the natural splendor of one of Nicaragua's most revered destinations. Come learn Spanish in Granada, Nicaragua and discover it all for yourself!
