Other than the beauty of the natural attractions of Nicaragua, such as the Mombacho Volcano or Lake Nicaragua, I have to say that one of my favorite this to do was to visit the town of Granada. Known to be one of the oldest cities in Central America, this petite colonial town stands out to me as a must visit destination. I might best define it as a small version of Cusco, Peru.
Despite the many nearby attractions, like the volcano and and nearby lakes mentioned above, a day visit or even an overnight stay in Granada would be highly recommended, if you happen to visit Nicaragua.
