My Nicagara Vacation Part 3: Granada

Granada is a Spanish colonial city that was built, and boomed, in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is one of the best preserved colonial cities in Latin America (not ravaged by earthquake or war). The architecture, colour and liveliness of the town adds up to a mesmerizing experience. We made sure to return to Granada for our final day and night to soak up a little more of its gorgeous light, exhilarating market, and beautiful accommodations.

Here are a few vistas that I enjoyed.

Views from the balconies at my hotel room in the Hotel Spa Granada. More photos of this gorgeous hotel to come...

View from our room at Casa Del Agua onto the courtyard pool. A room for three persons was $54 with air conditioning and hot showers (a real luxury on this trip).
