Time for one final post from last year’s trip to Nicaragua, this time exploring the last stop on our itinerary, the colonial city of Granada. Founded in 1524 by Francisco Hernández de Córdoba, Granada is considered to be the first European city in mainland America. Situated on Lake Nicaragua and surrounded by volcanoes, there are many opportunities for nature based activities, as well as the ability to explore the streets of the city and its many churches.
