  • Unfortunately the city of Granada has much indigence and this disfigures the sectors that are beautiful park is common and the houses of the street next to the sight of the church if they are nice

  • Beautiful central park bordered by a lovely cathedral. Merchants have good prices, but can always be talked down. Lots of people walking around asking you to buy things.  more »
  • Was dropped off here after a carriage ride through the town and the place was buzzing with stalls selling everything, music and dancing. The place was also lit up with Christmas lights and decorations...  more »

  • Fun place for tourists. Bought a whistle here that makes a bird call similar to a loons call, (and the loons respond back when I call with it up north on calm lakes). Dined at a nearby restaurant, enjoyed incredible appetizers and main course along with incredible dinner music from heart-warming performers. Lots to see in Central Park, so do your research and make the most of it if you're on a tight schedule. Great place with much hospitality.
  • Love this place! I'm sure you will too. Its colonial architecture and its energetic night live makes Granada Central park place you must visit while in Nicaragua. You can relax here, enjoy the night or day and take awesome pictures and videos.
  • All the action in Granada centers around this town square. To the west are the more upscale popular hotels and east of here are a nice selection of restaurants. In the edge of the square you have the cathedral and tons of vendors. There are some very nice hotels east of the square too, with bigger rooms and slightly lower rates.
  • Great place to sit down and relax, eat some snacks from one of many cart vendors, watch passing tourists and locals and listen to crazy sounds grackle birds make. The only inconvenience is being harrased every 3 minutes by a person trying to sell something, fortunately all of those people are very polite and not too annoying. Just a little ;)
  • The hot dogs and ham sandwiches are pretty gross, I'd probably avoid. Thank you for reading this review. I appreciate your taking the time to listen to my thoughts on Central America. Best of luck in your leading a fulfilling and happy life, and perhaps it will include a visit to this location.
