Managua to Granada Nicaragua

We did a city tour before leaving Managua for Granada stopping at a squatter’s encampment near the cathedral.  You can read their story in my other blog but quickly these are sugar cane workers who are protesting working conditions and chemicals used in the fields that have resulted in their chronic renal failure.  More than 3,000 works have died to date.

The drive to Granada was quite pleasant through beautiful country passing large haciendas and gated communities intermixed with cattle grazing the large fields.

While in Granada we called the Casa del Consulado Hotel home and it turned out to be our favorite hotel of the trip.
