Parque Central of Granada

Cathedral of Granada

Once you get in Granada, unless you have already booked your hotel, you start search for an accommodation suitable for your budget. Parque Central is good location to arrive for the city of Granada is relatively small and everything could be reached on foot.

You will see the the magnificent Cathedral on the side of the park.
There are plenty of tourist agencies around where you can get maps and information or just walk around and ask nearby hotels and hostels (hospedajes).
The hospedajes have prices starting from a few dollars for dorms - good choice for backpackers, students and groups. Some hostels have private rooms also.
Most of the hotels are expensive above $40 for a double room.

If you plan to stay at least for a week - look for a weekly rent in a private house.

Hotel La Pergola also has one apartment for weekly or monthly rent.
We rented this unit for a week for $180. We really liked the place - large living room with AC, cable TV, cozy loveseat and dining set for two, kitchenette in the corner with all you need, private bath and a large comfrotable bed upstairs trough a decorative wooden stairway. An ideal place for a honeymoon.
The staff in the hotel is great, skilled and very friendly. It is a small hotel - very quiet with a nice patio and a cool lobby on the side furnished with the characteristic rocking chairs. On the second floor there is a large terrace (la pergola) where one could enjoy the evening cool breeze and the beautiful view. Wireless internet and laundry servise also available.
La Pergola is just 3 blocks down from the Cathedral to the lake on Calle El Caimito and only one block from the favorite Calle La Calzada where you find many differant restaurants and bars:

La Calzada

La Calzada - the most popular avenue for tourists, starts on the left side of the Cathedral and runs all the way to the lake. It is a pleasant wide street to take a walk and choose from many nice restaurants with differant kind of cuisine or walk down to the lake.

Colonial style hotel

The streets of Granada are very colorful with its Spanish colonial style houses and hotels painted in different pretty colors - pink, lilac, yellow... and large wooden doors hiding lovely inner patios, filled with tropical plants, and the shadow of cool, spacious atriums.


Granada's surrounding nature is really beautiful.The city is situated on northwestern shore of Lake Nicaragua ( Lago de Cocibolca). From South is rising 1345 meters above the sea level the evergreen Volcano Mombacho covered by cloud forest which makes it look like huge green pile. The lake and the volcano-mountain determine the wonderful climate here in Granada.
