A visitor to our website sent me a few emails with a bunch of questions about Granada, Nicaragua, so I’ve decided to answer them here in a separate post.
We really liked Granada. One of our favorite towns. Only complaint about it was that it was REALLY hot. Don’t go there in the summer… October-March is fine, but even people from Granada leave in June and July.
You can read all of our thoughts and impressions from Nicaragua starting in this post and going forward to the post about Tica bus (links at the top of the posts)
Or start with this page (at the bottom)
And then go to this page, working your way from the posts at the bottom of the page to the top of the page.
I like the many different links to other social networking sites on the bottom of your website. That is a very cool design the way they are all lined up next to each other. Is there a lot to do in Granada? What did you like about Granada? I hear it is totally different than Costa Rica; from what I hear it is cheaper than CR. Only way to find out is to visit. Do you think Granada would be good for a single man like me?
Thanks for the compliments on social networking buttons. It’s a plugin for WordPress. I like it too. 🙂
There’s a fair amount to do in Granada… the obligatory church surfing, cigar tour and cigar rolling, lots of bars/restaurants, and a lot that’s relatively close including a couple volcanoes, lake nicaragua (HUGE), isla del omitepe (google that one), and Leon is a great city about 3 hours away… lots to do there.
The capital, Managua, is pretty much a dangerous and relatively dirty city, best we can tell, but you go through there to get to Granada.
My impression of prices in Costa Rica is that they are almost as expensive as the US, without the infrastructure.
Good for a single man like you? I’m not sure what you’re asking about there… I’m a married man, but if you’re asking if it would be easy to meet women, my impression is that it’s easy to meet women, especially if you’re from the states and the perception is that you have money… That sort of start is not good for a lasting relationship, and not to be crass, but it’s a pretty true statement.
Hope that’s helpful. Please ask any other questions you have about Granada here, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
