If you are looking for some great old world charm places in Central America, then there is no way that you can miss out on Granada. This city was founded and colonised by the Spanish people sometime in the mid-16th century, and the influence of that can be very well seen in the architecture of the various buildings and monuments in the city. Geographically, Granada is located right at the edge of Lake Nicaragua, and at the foot of the famous Mobacho Volcano.
