Day 1 Granada
Arrive at any time to your home for the week, a private house with garden complete with hammocks and swimming pool just one block from the central park. The Managua airport is approximately 45 minutes from Granada by taxi.
Nicaragua has flourished in recent years and boasts both friendly people and impressive natural beauty. Granada is Nicaragua’s third largest and oldest city and retains its traditional Spanish colonial character. It's sometimes called ¨The Great Sultana¨ because of its beautiful colonial architecture. In the warm evenings you can usually find friendly neighbors visiting and chatting with each other from rocking chairs in the open front room of their homes. You'll walk along cobblestone streets and see brightly painted buildings. Frequently live local music is played in the square, and good nightlife is easy to find. Granada is located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua and has a long park ideal for strolling.
Day 2-7 Granada (1D)
Dig into the included starter kit of breakfast essentials and local specialities to start your day off right. Orientation walk with your CEO then free time to explore the city. Enjoy a typical Nicaraguan meal with local friends one night.
Granada’s colonial charm is complemented by the active volcanoes and lakes that surround it, and there are many fun easy day trips available. Hike, cruise, or just explore the city’s markets and museums. Walking is probably the easiest way to see all the sights of Granada.
You might not want to leave your beautiful home for the week, but if you do, options are aplenty. Kayak or boat through the isletas of Lake Nicaragua, hike the cloud forest atop Mombacho Volcano, swim in the cool waters of crater lake Laguna de Apoyo or don a gas mask and peer over the rim of Masaya Volcano at night. The nearby markets of Masaya house vendors selling great Nicaraguan handicrafts such as hammocks, ceramics, and paintings.
For a local experience, navigate the busy Granada market then watch the world go by from a bench in the central park. Spanish classes and salsa lessons are options to help you dive into the local way of life, and be sure to take in a night of live music and dancing while you're here.
