Colonial Granada

Founded in 1524, Granada enjoys the distinction of being the oldest colonial city in the Americas. Granada is a romantic city of colorful colonial homes and neoclassical and baroque churches. You can wonder around the building stores around Central Park, including the Palacio de Cultura, on the west side. On the north end of the plaza on the right side, you will see a stone portico with lions, the only surviving portion of the original building burnt by USA filibuster called William Walker. Today is a cultural place know as Casa de los Tres Mundos. You can visit the oldest church of Central America, the San Francisco church and Convent, which was founded in 1529 and houses archaeological treasures from Zapatera Island, a primitive art exhibit, and historical displays. Walk by Lake Nicaragua for the cool breeze and views. Just off Granada, in the lake, are Las Isletas, made up of more than 350 island created when the Mombacho volcano exploded 20,000 years ago. You will also find one island with the remains of a fort, El Fuerte San Pablo, built in 1748. On the shore of the lake, we have the imposing Mombacho Volcano, with its thick cloud forest, cool climate, well- marked trails, biological station and wonderful views of Granada and Las Isletas.

  • I just returned from Nicaragua and wanted to tell you that both tours that we went on were fabulous! (Masaya volcano tour and "a day at the beach")- the tour guide Jimmy was very knowledgable and fun! And the bus driver Roger was also really good (calm & courteous drive)....We had a great time learning about the culture while enjoying the beautiful country. Please pass this on so Jimmy and Roger get 'kudos' from their manager! Best regards,-- Lisa Rothgeb | Senior Technical Designer - SWAT

  • I had booked online from the US 4 different one-day tours to different places in Nicaragua with Gray Line Managua and I have been very satisfied. Even though I had booked group tours, I found out I was the only passenger so I benefited of my own driver an tour guide for personalized tours during the whole 4 tours for the same price and was glad my tours were not canceled. Both tour guides were very professional, showing up on (or even before) time and attentive to all my desires, making all the changes to the program I wanted.

  • I was in Nicaragua last week, traveling with Rosemary McClure of the Los Angeles Times. David Rosales was our tour guide. He is a remarkable combination -- professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful, insightful, flexible, fluent in English, and fun to be with. You have a winner there. He is an excellent tour guide. We also appreciated Roger, our driver, who was always on time, flexible, courteous and a very good driver. I suspect they are your very best employees. Thank you for assigning us your very best.-- Marty
