Maggie’s favourite Restaurants in Granada:

*Pita Pita* best restaurant – eat the entrance plate / includes falafel, tzatziki, humus, aso…
*Garden Cafe* best coffee place and nice sandwiches
*Wok and Roll* restaurant – create your own Wok. Special: sit in the back upstairs.



amazing view of the Laguna de Apoyo 20 km outside of town.
Take the public bus from the cemetery in Granada or the bus station next to the food market in the center of Granada – tell the busdriver you wanna get off in Catarina
take a Tuk Tuk to the Mirador for 15-20 Cordobas per person
Entrance fee at the Mirador 20 Cordobas per person

Maggie loves to spend some time pick-nicking there.



*HOSTEL PARADISO*  best place to stay
for sure a little paradise – ask for day tour shuttle to the hostel or stay there – even better
Best food I had in Nicaragua in a Hostel!


Special tip: Get up early to see the sunrise!

Maggie recommends: If you wanna chill out and get your energy back, stay at least 2 – 3 nights. You will love the chill atmosphere and the beautiful resort. Make a reservation – lately it’s booked out.

Hostel offers shuttle to and from Granada for 3 USD per person.

There is nothing more beautiful than getting up early at Laguna de Apoyo and observing the sunrise at 5:30 am with a cup of coffee.
