  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located in the main street (La Calzada) in Granada with a lot of restaurants and bars just 100m away. Our Hotel is located in the quieter part of the street but with all activities close by. You won't get disturbed at night and it is really safe here. Granada is the oldest city in whole central america and has a unique colonial atmosphere. There are a lot of churches, museums and art galleries to visit to get to know the nicaraguan culture. There are a lot of nice national and international restaurants and bars in Granada. Granada is located at the lake Cocibolca and has some nice beaches near by. It is a 5-10 minute walk from our hotel to the lake. At the weekends it is quiet busy because all the bars and discos are open until 5 o clock in the morning.
    In your free time you can visit las isletas de granada, which are 365 small islands in the lake or you visit masatepe and the pueblos blancos full with handcrafts.
    Also you can hike the volcan Mombacho and the Volcan Masaya. The Lagoon Apoyo is about 20 km away and is a picturesque lagoon in a crater of a volcan, which is perfect for swimming.
