What to Do in Granada, Nicaragua

Hello dear readers!

Today, I want to share with you three suggestions of things to do if you ever go to Granada, Nicaragua, which was one of my favorite stop in this beautiful Central-American country!

Without further ado:

1. Spend the day chilling at Laguna Apoyo

The Apoyo Lagoon is a wide crater in the form of an inverted cone, in the center of which is one of the most beautiful lakes. The crater was formed about 23 000 years ago after a strong volcanic explosion. (More info here.)

You can spend the day kayaking for free, swimming in the beautiful water, and soaking up the sun with a book in one hand and a drink in the other πŸ˜‰ .


2. Take a night tour to Masaya Volcano

I’ve seen a couple of active volcanoes through my travels, but never from this close! We were standing right at the edge of the crater, staring directly at the red, stirring lava. It’s an unbelievable sight! (More info here.)

Unfortunarely, I really didn’t have the camera or the skills to take a photo that did it justice.

My poor attempt at photographing the volcano

3. Visit the churches of the city center

Because the colors! I mean, just strolling through the city is such a beautiful walk! And it’s free! You only pay one or two cordobas (not even a US dollar) to go on the roof of the churches and get a wonderful view of the city.




That’s it for me!

Have you ever been to Nicaragua?

  2. The picture of the volcano is freaking cool, what are you on about? πŸ˜€ I can’t imagine what it must be like, staring down at the lava (cool, I know. Well, not the temperature). ALSO, THE CHURCHES OH MY GOD. THEY’RE GORGEOUS.
    (also, I did the Zodiac tag and it was so much fun to do! Thanks for tagging me, btw. And I may have the post a bit too long so oops :D).

  3. Great tips! I leave to nicaragua in 20 days for two weeks and I am very excited. I grew up in Costa Rica and spend so much time there but unfortunatley tourism has gotten the best of it and is getting expensive. I heard Nicaragua is the old Costa Rica!
