A delightful mix of colonial churches, narrow streets and colourful houses, Granada – founded by the Spanish in 1524 – is the oldest colonial city in the Americas. Nearby is the Mombacho volcano, whose upper slopes are covered by a cloud forest and punctuated with nature trails. Trace the edge of the extinct volcano craters or head into the treetops on a canopy tour for breath-taking views down to Granada and Lake Nicaragua. The city of Leon, another colonial relic, was capital of Nicaragua until 1851 and prides itself as being the intellectual hub of the country to this day. Home to a number of
wonderful traditional ceremonies performed at the various universities, the resident student population also makes for suitably fun nightlife. Round off your trip with some time relaxing on the Pacific Coast and you’ve got yourself the perfect Nicaragua holiday.
