Pointview at Catarina / Masaya Crafts Market
The viewpoint of Catarina is one of the highest hills surrounding the Apoyo Lagoon, and the view from there is superb. You can see the whole lagoon as well as Lake Nicaragua behind it. The Mombacho volcano borders the lake and is also prominently present.
The craftsmarket in Masaya is a nice place to get your Nicaraguan souvenirs. A friendly setting and lots of small stands with souvenirs that are not very different but that do offer enough variety to find something for everybody back home.
Granada ( City )
Granada was founded by the Spanish in 1524, Granada is one of the oldest colonial cities in the Americas. On this guided tour you’ll travel both on foot and in a classic horse-drawn carriage to explore key sites including the San Francisco church and adjacent San Francisco Convent, built in 1529. You’ll also visit the Merced church where you have the opportunity to climb the bell tower and enjoy spectacular views over the city, Lake Nicaragua, and Mombacho volcano. The last stop is the oldest part of the city where you visit the Xalteva church and the old city walls.
Granada (Isletas de Granada)
When the Mombacho Volcano erupted thousands of years ago, it threw huge rocks into Lake Nicaragua. As a result of this violent eruption 365 islets were formed in front of Granada. The islets differ in size between a hundred square meters and over one hundred hectares. The wild nature, resident birds and visitors and the day-a-day routine of the local families make it an ideal place for a bote ride or kayaking around the lake.
San Juan del Sur ( City and beach )
This beach, which has an almost perfect “U” shape, is surrounded by mountains. Here, visitors can find one of the most famous beach towns of the country: San Juan del Sur. The sand of this beach is not white as the one we can find in the Caribbean, but it clearer than in the Pacific.
In addition, San Juan del Sur has the facilities of a typical small town: shops, postal office, Internet, health centers, language schools, police stations, workshops, among others
