DETOUR is located in Granada, a beautiful colonial city and Nicaraguan destination that shouldn’t be missed! It has a colorful market with a labyrinth of spices and fruits, cigar artisans and makers of fine shoes.
Our culture is rooted in a tradition inherited from centuries of mixing Spanish colonial, indigenous Chorotega and Nahuatl peoples and cultures. You can visit the archipelago of 300 islets in Lake Cocibolca, lying in the shadow of the impressive Mombacho Volcano that attracts scientists, bird-watchers and nature-lovers. Just a little farther away are the vast marshes of Tisma, the smoking Masaya Volcano, and the stupendous Apoyo crater with its large blue lake.
In Granada, on your own or with a friendly local guide, you can travel the streets on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage or on a bicycle, and admire colonial homes, churches and picturesque buildings, drink coconut water at the dock, learn how to roast cocoa beans and roll Habana cigars, and watch shoemakers in action.
