Best Things to do in Granada Nicaragua

From touring the colonial city in the morning to cruising the volcanic isletas of Granada on Lake Nicaragua in the afternoon, mix it up a little with these great ways to spend one day in Granada. 

Take a Granada City Tour

Start your day with a private tour of the beautiful colonial city. Sure, Granada is easy to explore on your own, but there are many things to see in Granada beyond the immediate city centre.

Stroll Through Parque Colón

Lined with brilliantly coloured horse-drawn carriages, the central plaza of Granada, Parque Colón is alive with bright cafe stalls, and vendors selling all kinds of stuff you kind of don’t want or need.

The Granada Cathedral

Playing centre stage to this almost film set city is the most prominent and recognisable building in Granada (and possibly Nicaragua), the Granada Cathedral.

San Francisco Church and Museum

The convent now serves as a museum housing some of Granada’s most valuable antiquities, salvaged from the hands of pirates and a history of destruction.

Iglesia La Merced

Built in 1534, Iglesia La Merced Church in the centre of town offers the best views in Granada. It costs around $1USD to climb to the top of the bell tower.

Enjoy a Horse Drawn Carriage Tour Out of Town

What better way to explore the outer areas of the old city than cruising the back streets in a horse-drawn cart, soaking up the atmosphere.

The Old Hospital

Stories abound from residents close by of screams in the night and even visions of patients in the windows. Every ghost story lovers dream.
