Z Lago Apoyo jsme jeli autobusem a hlavni silnici, kde jsme meli vzit autobus do Granady. Na dalnici jsme meli stesti, jelikoz nam zastavil nejaky american v dodavce a svezl nas na korbe a jeste nas navedl k hostelu.
Granada byla zalozena v roce 1524 a tudiz je jednim z nejstarsich colonialich mest v Nicaragui. V 19 st. byla Granada velmi …

Quetzaltrekkers and the Telica Twilight Tour

A travel blog entry by lynsey.nault


I know, it sounds like the next Harry Potter movie right? And it involved liquid hot magma - Austin Powers would be proud.

From Ometepe Island, we caught a taxi to Granada with Raoul, the Seattle surgeon who works in the hospital Grey's Anatomy was modelled after. It turns out their lives are more like the show Scrubs then they are like …

Granada/Ometepe/San Juan Del Sur

A travel blog entry by solokiwiabroad


Following a couple of big bus travel days another night in a big city was not on my agenda, so, with only another hour ahead of me I hightailed it straight out of Managua - squashed like an extra full can of sardines in the post work crowd to put my head down in Granada.

Colonial facades around a town square were a sight for tired eyes …

BBs fight back

Garden cafe - finally a decent salad, and what a lovely setting!

Islets - monkey Island

Canopy tour - superman and paparazzi

BBs - the commando troops found a way in under the door

Man seems to wait for Sarah to be right next to the gigantic bell in the tower before ringing it - it was touch and go whether she'd …

City Break

A travel blog entry by guy.everton


If I'm honest, we didn't have a set idea on where to go when we'd boarded the ferry leaving Ometepe, owing to the fact that there were three destinations in roughly the same direction that we could have gone to. However, after going down to get some scrambled eggs on the ferry, we bumped into a British girl I'd become acquainted with in Bocas and …

    all that I needed for a quick overnight in Granada. Helpful staff, a fan, wifi and able to refill my water bottle - perfect.

    Not even an explanation of where the bathroom is when I check in..Oh, am I taking up too much of your texting time by asking for a bedsheet.. The staff is incredibly rude and indifferent, even ignoring you at some points. The rooms are stifling hot, I saw some guys outside the rooms in the courtyard sleeping on the tile because they couldnt stand it. Avoid this place, book a room in the Oasis for $1 or $2 more. Nadine, the host during the morning, is the one saving grace of this place. She smiles, she says hello, she's very nice. Nice goes a LONG way, folks! Thanks Nadine!

    The bar staff and most of the reception staff were friendly and helpful (with the exception of the female receptionist who had an attitude problem). I stayed in a dorm in the hidden monkey, which was much quieter. The only problem with the room was the lack of keys (6 bed dorm) and the fact that you couldn't lock the door from the inside unless everyone was in, otherwise you would lock people out. The bar area was a great place to hang out and I met lots of great people here. The food's not bad either and they have happy hour each night. There's also free wifi.
