Full reviews to follow but a few quick recommendations for Granada.
HOTEL SAN FRANCISCO is perfect! Beautiful, clean, good location and 4 star level service. The owner even took us to a local baseball game. One evening we had a problem at 2am and even Abraham the night staff spoke English and went out of his way to be helpful. At one point we called Maria at home and she was very gracious even at the late hour. Melissa the manager has created a great team!
MOMBOCHO CIGAR and CHOCO MUSEO tours both very informative and allow you to make your own cigar or chocolate bar to take home.
GREAT LOCAL GUIDE in Allan Cesar email@example.com. I am traveling with an 18 year old and Allan is a great fit for young people. Raised in Granada and knows local history, architecture etc, but also willing to share the local hip scene. He even took my son out one night on his own. We did Mombocho Zip Tour, City Tour and Islettas with Allan.
FOOD San Juans for Churrasco (high end). Telepizza for great US style Pizza (we were in rural villages for weeks and craving pizza!) Choco Museo – a new breakfast buffet with cook to order all you can eat and awesome plantains. Don't miss local snack of Vigoron which is plantain chips, chicken, cabbage and picante.
