Granada, Nicaragua

Thursday Joe met us and we spent the morning in Granada. It is such a beautiful colonial city.

Joe gave us a tour of the San Francisco convent which is one of the main historical attractions and museums in Granada.  You can read more about the convent: San Francisco Convent

After the convent, we went to Cafe de las Sonrisas. It is always a pleasure to hear Tío Antonio speak. He is SUCH an inspiration and is a true man for others. He is celebrating the 10th year of the hammock factory being open, and we enjoyed a delicious meal as well as learning how to make a hammock.

To end the afternoon we went to Volcan Mombacho where the girls had a tour of the coffee plantation and learned how coffee is made. It definitely makes you appreciate that delicious cup of joe in the morning!

We were treated to a visit to the Managua port. The city has updated the port for tourists and locals alike. They have games for the kids, restaurants and some shopping. We had pizza. Yum!!!
