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.

... headed out for dinner and much more expensive Mojitos (a whole 1.30) and had great mind expanding conversations about philosophy, religion and the state of the world. Later in the evening we were playing pool and strumming on one of the guys guitars, where I learned the chords for one of my favorite songs (Zombie). It’s one of the great things about travelling when you meet such random people, and connect such a nice way in such a short ...
... to the local zoo. We got in for free because my dad is the vet. I fed a buffalo, a bear, and gave a monkey a lollipop! It was very fun. There were a lot of big cats, snakes, bears, buffaloes, camels, elk, and monkeys. There were even puppies for sale in the entrance! I liked the zoo very much.
Every day I learn new words, notice cultural differences, strategize against homesickness, make mistakes, try new food, and love Mexico more and more.
... between Calle Atravesada and La Concepcion. Before we started heading to Calle La Calzada, Granada´s famous pub street, we had a tasty lunch in Lucy´s which is actually a hostel near the Parque Central but they cook there as well. Their “comida economica” cost NIO 70 per person and it included a piece of meat (chicken, beef or fish), rice, potatoes, salad and lemonade.
Later we walked down Calle La Calzada, passing all the restaurants and bars ...
... bocci ball, hammocks, and drinks. Starting to get that relaxing feeling back). Alyssa and Tammy felt like unwinding a little more with a yoga class the following morning. I on the other hand skipped the downward dog and found my inner peace in the weight room. Rather than waste that post workout look by taking a shower, Alyssa went back to Pan de Vida to pick up a cinnamon roll in her workout cloths so it appeared like she earned her baked good for the day. Alyssa ...
... bright blue sky. We needed to return to La Cruz that afternoon, but decided to search out La Cofradia before we left. Were we ever glad we did. The grounds were beautiful and manicured. We had a tour with only the five of us and our guide Julia, who was exceptional. We learned more in depth about distillation, sampled the pineapples after they were cooked, went to the ceramics building ...
