This is a beautiful county and I only spent 2 week here and didn’t have enough time to see all the parts of Nicaragua and only went to Granada and San el Sur.
Granada was so beautiful, a sleepy town with not many tourists. We stayed at Los Patios, it’s a small boutique hotel. The interior was sleek and the room immaculate. The service was faultless and we felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves!
My favourite thing to do in Granada was simply to walk and explore. The place is so quaint and beautiful with multi-coloured houses on every street. A restaurant I highly recommend is the Garden Café, a super healthy restaurant with fresh produce. Their Hummus was the best and their CWB smoothie was perfect in the heat. We went back pretty much every day!
We also explored the Islets of Granada on a boat tour, where 365 mini islands were created as a result of a volcanic eruption and climbed Mombacho Volcano, we opted to walk it insted of drive and it was a STEEP climb, the guide was not exaggerating.
After 3 nights, we said our farewells to Granada and made our way to San El Sur to start our Surf Camp with Barefoot Surf Camps. I loved the town, it had a Bali-esque vibe just less shiny and touristy. Food was great. I recommend Nacho Libre (veggie burger), Salud (smoothie bowl), Simon Says (salads). The surf was great, not too busy and everyone in the water super friendly. Watching the sunset by the Jesus statue is a must!
I'll definitely be back!
