Grenada, Nicaragua Hotels
By:Ken Macdonald

The Nicaraguan city of Granada is located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, also known as Lake Cocibolca. It lies 29 miles from the national capital, Managua, and is a 45-minute drive from Managua International Airport. Granada has a thriving tourist industry and many of its hotels are set in historic buildings from the colonial era. Even modern hotels tend to be built in the colonial style, to fit in with the historic city center's architecture.
