Granada

 
Granada Granada is situated on the port of Lago de Nicaragua. Lago de Nicaragua is a very large lake, the largest in Central America. It even has freshwater sharks. Next to the lake, in Granada, there is a park where people go for recreation/picnicking. They even use it as a beach. There are also good seafood restaurants in the area. The local fresh fish from the lake is called Guapote, and it is very tasty when it is fried and accompanied with rice, beans and vegetables. Nicaraguans eat mashed red beans... and also fried ripe plantains (which the eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, literally!) Granada's main street is very nice with well restored houses in colonial style and different colors. The Parque Central...
 

Island of Ometepe

 
Island of Ometepe The Island of Ometepe was formed by two volcanoes rising from Lake Nicaragua in the Republic of Nicaragua. Its name derives from the Aztec words Ome = two and Tepelth = hills, meaning two mounts. The Volcanoes, Concepcin and Maderas, are joined by a low isthmus to form one island, giving it the form of an hourglass. Ometepe has an area of 276 km. It is 31 km long and 5 to 10 km wide. The island has a population of 35,000, and an economy based on livestock, agriculture, and tourism. Coffee and tobacco are the major crops. The Two Volcanoes Concepcin volcano rose in the early Holocene Epoch and, through continual eruptions, now reaches an altitude of 1,610 m. This volcano is considered the most perfectly formed volcano ...
 

El Castillo

 
El Castillo Situated on the San Juan river which markes the border between Nicaragua and Costa Rica, El Castillo is a little out of the way and is reached by boat from San Carlos, situated where the San Juan river and Lake Nicaragua meet. El Castillo itself is a fort with great historical importance as it was the last line of defence against enemy armies and pirates wanting to raid Granada. It is a pleasant town with a few basic accomodation options and small museum in the fort itself. ...
 

Bluefields

 
Bluefields If you want to visit an original Pirates Nest, this is the place to go. Although Bluefields is very much removed from the rest of the country physically and is not easy reachable it is worth the detour. The Caribbean coast was dominated by the British from the 1500s until the mid 1800s and most people here speak English. The atmosphere is more Carribean than Latin American: Reggae is the music you will hear in every bar. Unfortunately Bluefields suffered almost complete destruction by Hurricane Joan in 1988; none of the nice colonial structures stand any more. The beautiful tropical setting and unique culture remain however....
