Instead of changing US cash for local currency....(I hate ot carry lots of cash - too dangerous these days)....are there lots ATM machines easily available in Granada so I can simply draw money in the local currency from my US bank checking account in amounts I find I need when I am there???

I recommend having both dollars and cordobas - some places give you a better price if you pay in cordobas and some if you pay in dollars, so if you have both you can choose to pay with whatever currency is a better deal. We used several ATMs in Granada and Leon, as well as one in the main hall in the Managua airport, which allowed withdrawls in both currencies.
