For the first time since the uprisings of 2018 a few tourists are returning to Nicaragua which is a very beautiful country. Although I would not recommend travelling here on your, travelling with an organized tour is now quite feasible. One of the stops will certainly be the old colonial city of Granada which has an architectural identity created by the wars and fires of the mid 1800s. Everything basically dates from after that time including the Hotel Casa del Consulado.
It is located only two short blocks away from the main plaza and cathedral which may be the most recognizable building in all of Central America. There are only 14 rooms which are quite large and centred around an open courtyard. There are some nice paintings on the walls of volcanoes and lakes.
Breakfast is included and is served individually rather than as a buffet and it's quite good. There is also a bar and a pool which is great for cooling off in Granada's very hot afternoons.
Our room was on the second floor and had an outdoor patio.
The internet works well and you can get a few english channels on the tv.
Overall this place is a safe oasis in this interesting city.More
