Antiguo Convento San Francisco: The towering stone statues displayed in one of the Convento’s many courtyards are a stunning glimpse into the nation’s pre-Columbian past.
The Waterfront: Lake Nicaragua is spectacular in different ways throughout the day, and nowhere is it more beautiful than Granada’s landscaped lakefront.
Iglesia La Merced: Climb the bell tower for the best view in all of Granada.
Las Isletas: Spend a lazy day swimming, picnicking, and relaxing among the hundreds of gorgeous islands that comprise Las Isletas.
Parque Nacional Archipiélago Zapatera: The stunning alter-ego statues in the museums came from these islands; an exciting lacustrine day trip leads you into Nicaragua’s prehistory.
Volcán Mombacho: More than a gorgeous background for your Granada photographs, Volcán Mombacho has a first-class set of hiking trails, an ecolodge, a canopy tour, and a lot more.
