Granada Nicaragua

Nicaragua Map

Granada Nicaragua is a colorful colonial city located on the northwest shore of Lake Nicaragua, about 45 minutes from the capital city of Managua. The population of Granada is about 115,000 people.

Nearly everything you could want in Granada is located within three blocks of the central park, making the city an almost ideal retirement village. And nearby are great outdoor recreational activities.

Nicaragua is also said to be the safest country in Central America. The days of the Sandinistas, Contras, and American CIA are long gone. But many people are still unaware of this, so Nicaragua remains uncrowded and a good value.

"My wife and I just watched Live or Retire Overseas Granada. What a great video! Tremendous scenery of the area, a wealth of knowledge from both the author and several members of the expat community and an insider’s look at where we might live one day. Loved it and highly recommend it for anyone thinking about moving to this fascinating part of the world."

“Hearing about the experiences from real people that were not paid to do the video was a big plus for me. I wanted to hear the honest opinions of other people that made the leap of faith to live in another country.”
