Granada or Laguna de Apoyo

5 posts
Granada or Laguna de Apoyo

We leave for Nicaragua in a couple weeks. I have the whole itinerary set, except for 1 day. We are spending a couple days on Ometepe and then spending a couple days relaxing at the beach near Tola. From there I am trying to decide if we want to head to Granada or Apoyo before we spend our last day in Masaya seeing the volcano and going to the markets there. We will have just spent a couple days at the beach relaxing, so I don't want to go to Apoyo if it is just going to be similar to that. We will have a little more than a half day available at either place. Any thoughts?

Given your beach time, I´d pick Granada. Laguna de Apoyo is lovely, but really a place to lounge. Granada is a nice colonial city and the old churches are great.

I agree. Need to see the city. The laguna is nice but that is about it.

There is a few things to do in Granada, walking around is very pleasant, visit the La Merced Church tower for great views of the city, The San Francisco Convent Pre/Columbian museum, Dona Elba Cigars to see Cigars being rolled and the local market to see the daily life of the locals
