La Gran Sultana
The lakeside city of Granada has the look and feel of a historically important economic and political center, with grand colonial architecture, a unified look, and many cultural attractions. A walk through the city center forms the core of many Granada itineraries, with a wealth of pastel colored and terracotta-topped buildings to see, linked up by pleasant cobblestone roads. Outside of the urban area, the islands and beaches of the lake, and the local nature reserves provide good options for day trips spent spotting birds, monkey, and butterflies, and relaxing in hot springs. Take a look at our Nicaragua online vacation planner to refine the details of your trip to Granada.
