After a week of waves and dust, pigs in the road, offshores blowing water into our ears, we moved to Granada for a couple of nights before leaving Nicaragua.
I have never been to Granada, and really wanted to make sure it was part of the itinerary this time around.
The last trip was much more of a surf mission, and the waves cooperated with that mindset. Ten days of solid all day sessions, a guide to drive us around where he deemed best. Just wake up, eat, surf, eat, sleep. Repeat.
This trip ended up being different. Mostly because the waves were smaller. So we motod around and caught some mellow sessions.
Still a good boat trip to Lance’s and Playgrounds, but just without the bite that I know those places can provide.
Either way, after a week or so, it’s nice to roll into an old colonial city and wander the streets for a day or so.
And it fits to get some great coffee while we’re at it.
Garden Cafe, Granada
If you look up ‘best coffee in Granada’, the Garden Cafe is sure to pop up at the top of every list. And for good reason.
The Garden Cafe is a real respite from the heat and chaos of the city, and the dust of riding motorcycles in the country side.
An espresso while sitting and catching up on my journal and just taking in the scene was a really enjoyable way to spend some time. In fact, it was worth doing two or three times a day while we were here.
