Nicaragua Day 6 - Granada

December 30, 2011: Nicaragua Day 6

We started the day with a drive up to a coffee plantation on the base of Mombacho Volcano near Granada. Our purpose was to do a canopy tour, using zip-lines to transit between platforms well above the forest floor. It all worked well and was considerable fun, thanks to the two guides who instructed us, checked our harnesses and carabiner attachments, and stopped us when we approached a platform too fast. They took a few photos and videos with my camera to document the adventure, but the images (and the subjects) lack the esthetic value that this site demands :-).

We returned to Granada around noon, and wandered the center after lunch. This building front is brightly colored even by the standards of Granada, a gaily painted city.
