Travel Tips for Granada

Tierra tours

by paradisedreamer

Tierra tours do transfers between cities as well as organising various day tours. We found them to be well organised, with very informative guides. Their prices are about average and sometimes cheaper than other tour offices. We did the following tours:
Masaya - The tour was only USD18 plus C65 entrance fee to the national park. Please see my Masaya page for more info
Las Isletas - There were over 6 people on our tour so it was only $10 each and Sam was free, the tour is about 2.5 hours and includes a drink on one of the islands.

CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE

by Sininen

I happened to be in Granada when Nicaragua celebrated its independence, 15 September. It had been raining that day and I was resting in my room. I decided to leave and take a little walk before I'd retire for the day. As I was approaching the Cathedral and Central Square I heard some lovely national music and walked towards to it. Good decision! In the Plaza de la Independencia local people were performing. School children recited poems, gave speeches and danced folk dances. Really interesting though I cannot say that I would have understood much of what was said. The square was full of people and it was interesting to look at them too. Here in Finland Independence Day is a very serious day when we remember all those men and women who gave their lives to gain us our independence, so I really enjoyed seeing people who were happy and gay. Of course it is easier for them because they can celebrate outdoors, which is not possible here having our Independence Day in winter, early December.

Mombacho Volcano National Park.

by euzkadi

This natural reserve is located 10 kilometres near Granada. The main feature of the park is the Mombacho Volcano a Stratovolcano of 1345 metres height. There´s an entrance fee of $10.00; after paying the fee in the office near the parking lot a truck takes you to the volcano. The park has two treeking trails...The easy one needs 1-2 hours to the Biological Station (where you can see the Cloud Forest), and the longests 4 hours if you want to visit the Dwarf Forest (Bosque Enano) where the trees are very short due to the strong winds that blow there. I took the shorter, but otherwise i enjoyed the great views of the Lake Cocibolca, Las Isletas (small islands in the lake shore) and Granada.

Pueblos Blancos/Laguna de Apoyo by bus

by Pieter11

A very nice (half)daytrip from Granada is a trip to the so called "Pueblos Blancos" (white villages) and the Laguna de Apoyo that you can see clearly from one of these villages, Catarina.

The get there, you have to go to the small busstation close to the market in Granada. From the Parque Central, go one block west and two blocks south and you're there. At the station, ask for a bus going to Catarina and San Juan de Oriente. This bus will cost you about 1 dollar and in 40 minutes time you'll be in Catarina.

When we took this bus, we got dozens of different advises about where to get off the bus when we asked the people in the bus; which can make you quite nervous. Therefore it is better to ask the driver or the ticket-salesman to give you a sign when you're there: at least they should know.

When you get out in Catarina, you can either walk to the Mirador, where you can see the Laguna, through town, or you can rent a scoot-taxi to take you there for about 40 cents per person.

In total the trip will only cost you one hour, 1,40 dollars and a sore bottom because of the bumpy ride towards the villages.

To the south by bus

by Pieter11

An important transport hub close to Granada is Rivas, in the south of Nicaragua. From here you can catch busses to San Juan del Sur, a popular surftown at the Pacific Coast, to the border with Costa Rica, and you can get a taxi there to get to the harbour in order to take the boat to Isla Ometepe.

To get to Rivas, you need to take the bus from the small busstation at the Mercado Municipal in central Granada. At one block west and two blocks south you'll find this station and from here a lot of busses go directly to Rivas.

The trip there takes you about 1 hour and costs around 1 dollar.
