Nicaragua – Day 2: Granada

Tagged: , , ,

Situated in western Nicaragua, Granada is historically one of the most important cities in the country, both economically and politically. It has a rich colonial heritage, which is seen throughout its architecture.


Today was the first day of the series of photography workshops that would be held by Photographers Without Borders during our time in Nicaragua. Our focus was telling a story through 3-5 images. Our plan for the day was a walking tour of the city of Granada, lead by Suyen, our incredible G Adventures guide. With our photo assignment for the day fresh in our minds from that morning’s workshop, we embarked on our tour, ready to capture some stories.

We explored the market, visited cathedrals, stopped for lunch and snacks at various spots, and visited a Hammock Shop and La Cafe De Sonrisas, both run by Tio Antonio who is changing the lives of individuals with various disabilities.
