Granada

Granada was founded in 1524. A colorful colonial city, fantastic for taking photos. As with all colonial city's in Central America, Granada is built around its main square "Parque Central". That represents the city's social hub. From Managua airport you can take the Paxeos mini bus for $15 US. You will need to email and confirm with in 24 hours of your flight arrival. Email your flight details, number of passengers and luggage to reseras@paxeos.com You may have to wait at the airport, but they will give you a time! Cathedral and lake Nicaragua in the background

Central Park
There are many children in Central Park and along Calzada Street begging. Granada has a good network of Charity's that can feed poor children unlike the rest of Nicaragua. But the children prefer not to go to school…
