Granada

Mapper » Mexico, Central America & Caribbean » Mexico & Central America » Nicaragua » Granada

 

Granada is located on the northwest side of the Lake Nicaragua (Lago Cocibolca).

It is the oldest colonial city in Nicaragua, maintaining a flourishing level of commerce with ports on the Atlantic Ocean reached via the lake and the San Juan River.

It has retained much of its colorful colonial buildings and interesting history, making it one of the most popular destinations in the country.

The lake and surrounding volcanoes offer diverse outdoor activities, from boating to hiking.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
