Pass By:  
San Juan del Sur
Stop At:  
Granada
Founded in 1524 by conquistador Hernández de Cordoba, is the oldest city in the western hemisphere of the Americas. Unlike other cities that claim the same distinction, the city of Granada was not only the settlement of the conquest, but also a city registered in official records of the Crown of Aragon, and the Kingdom of Castile in Spain. Granada is also known as La Gran Sultana, in reflection of its Moorish and Andalusian appearance. On this excursion, we will visit the cultural center Casa de los Tres Mundos and the Museum of San Francisco Convent, known for its collection of pre-Columbian statutes and pottery. During the tour you will have the chance to see the colorful market, the charming streets and the beautiful churches and monuments.

Tour was outstanding. While it is a long drive from the port out guide made it interesting along the way, stopping at a photo opportunity on the lake and driving to an old lava plug that was a mining site now. The time on the lake was most special as was the carriage ride in the city. We would strongly recommend this tour to anyone.
