TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bocona Granada
Hotel La Bocona was great. The staff was incredibly nice. The location made for easy walking to historic sites and dinner.
You should know a few things before staying here, however....
1. You have your own bathroom... but it's across a large courtyard. So if you're like me and have to go potty in the middle of the night, it's not the most convenient thing to deal with.
2. Our room was along the street with nothing but shutters and bars between us and all the loud street noise. Yelling, loud cars and lots of honking made sleeping difficult. I'm a light sleeper so I didn't sleep much. So bring some serious ear plugs!
3. No airconditioning, fans only. Sounds like a westerner luxury we could do without... until it's hot as hell and you're trying to sleep. So if being comfortable at night and not sweating like crazy is a big deal to you, I'd advise another spot to stay.

... With nothing happening in town we retired to the hostel for some chilled out drinks. There is a bit of an eclectic mix of people here, a weird old man and an old lady in the dorm who travels with a cat. If that jumps on me in the night it won't be doing much of anything anymore.
* There aren't any road rules but I feel like there should be. I can only think of two at the moment anyway, the other one being "There are no goodbyes on The Road."
... gt;:( )There was a civil war 20 years ago so it hasn't been able to develop as much as Costa Rica and panama. People are really friendly and nice here and it is considered the safest place in Central America. I think it's my favourite place ever...even more than...uhh...more than Ghana! I got the boat to a volcanic island in the middle of lake Nicaragua. The boat was jam packed full of every imaginable thing as well as people, animals and children. It was windy and the waves were ...
... for pedicures. It was pretty hilarious. Each pedicure cost $5 but it was done Nica style. It lasted about 10 min and then after they put the polish on our toes they hairsprayed our feet! Too funny!
Some other notes of interest about Granada:
1. Lots of charming horse drawn carriages aroundtown. We grew to enjoy the sounds of the horses going by our front door.
2. We rented a car here b/c Scott couldn't walk more than a few blocks on ...
... br> On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, at about 5-5:30, my mom and I go to the gym. Last week we only went two days, but I ran 5 kilometers on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday. For those that don't know me that well, I never run. I mean never. Like running for fun? Yeah that's a big no for me. Nevertheless, it's my goal to run at least 10 kilometers a week (or in the three days we go to the gym). Yesterday I ran 4. And I don't just run, there's a trainer there ...
... the party early. The party was Frozen themed and the girl the party was for was dressed as Elsa and her little sister, Ana. How cute, right?
School is going well also. We wear uniforms which are terrible but we get to wear "street clothes" on Fridays. I'm in third grade which is the last grade until University. A few of the older exchange students are in it, but they are all at least almost 18, making me the youngest in my class. I like to think they put me in ...
