Nicaragua is becoming an increasingly popular destination for travelers eager to get off the beaten path. That probably has a lot to do with all the recent buzz about the country in travel publications fueled by the Nicaraguan government’s initiative to bolster its tourism industry. On my trip to Granada, the city proved to be a destination that does caters to tourism. And expats. But it is not saturated. Traveling there it really is easy to be exposed to real life in Nicaragua. And if that is your thing, it is a great place to visit.
