Wander – or, better still, take a colourful little horse-drawn carriage – around Granada’s historic center and your eye will be delighted at every turn. You’ll discover streets of gaily painted houses, featuring overhanging balconies and rustic tiled roofs. You’ll happen upon tiny cobbled streets that lead you, beguilingly, into open squares fringed with grandiose buildings in the colonial style – many with more than a hint of the Baroque about them. And you may even find yourself wondering whether you’re standing in front of a monumental municipal building – or a giant, pink and white wedding cake!
Make Granada’s Hotel Dario part of your tailor-made vacation to Nicaragua and you won’t just be visiting the historic city, you’ll be staying in its heart, within a few minutes’ walk of its most important sights.
