    I decided to visit this attraction to see how it compares with other public markets of the countries I had previously visited.

    There is chaos here, no groupings or separation of similar products. I saw vendors selling clothes with one guy selling fresh meats among them. Among the vendors selling fruits and vegetables, there are several selling toiletries, etc. It was smelly and dirty compared to the other spublic markets I had visited.

    Don’t waste your time visiting this place.

    We went here not knowing quite what to expect, but it ended up being our highlight of Granada. Our tour guide Nuvia was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. The tour cost $8 each and was fantastic. We stayed after the tour to try a cigar and glass of rum which cost an additional $10. We ended up staying three and a half hours and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. We would say this is a must see attraction in Granada.

    Although it is well worth a trip do not have things shipped as they may not arrive. It is best to take them with you

    Beautiful leather bags and really lovely owner. Too many to choose from! I think I bought four different bags, including my new computer bag which holds everything perfectly and which I constantly get compliments on! The wristlets are fabulous too, especially the interchangeable straps.

    This is a great place - good selection of books on Nicaragua in English. Also reasonable choice of English-language novels from Latin American and international authors. There are also travel guides, language guides, books for children and a Spanish-language selection. Books are a mix of new and second-hand.

    It's not cheap. Even second-hand books cost around 7-15 USD, and new books start from around 15 USD. However there is a "bargain shelf" for 2 USD.

    Also note that opening hours are limited - 12.00 untill 17.00 I think. The first evening I was looking for the shop I walked around for ages and could find no trace!! However, it was because it was closed and there didn't seem to be signage outside when closed.

    Overall, not cheap but a good place to stock-up on reading material.

    Alex was our guide who kept us riveted with his stories and explanation of how cacao is grown, harvested, fermented and eventually becomes practically a perfect food. We sampled Cacao tea, 70% dark chocolate and a special cashew/chocolate spread called "nica-tella" . My 11 year old is a nutella lover and we bought both the peanut and cashew products. We are still stuffing it into bananas and celeryl sticks and wish we had bought a case!

    We just arrived in Granada and were looking for 'galeria mi camara mi mundo'. Unfortunately the room of the gallery is not existing anymore since a few days. But you can contact Lisseth via facebook. She is working for 'Empowerment International' who started this project. She can tell you everything about it. Of course you can buy pictures at their office:) Take back a very beautiful memory and support the kids!

    Our visit here was one of the highlights of our visit to Granada - we enjoyed a fascinating exposition of pottery techniques, met the people who live and work here, and were able to purchase some beautiful examples of their work to take home. Recommended.

    A gentleman from Spain was so taken with Nicaragua that he settled there and is devoting his life to helping the hearing impaired, partly through this project. His goal was to show that employing someone with a disability is not a deterrent to business. Everyone employed in the hammock shop is disabled in some way. Visit the Cafe Sonrisas next door (Cafe of Smiles) to witness the umbrella organization of the hammock shop. About the hammocks, they are beautiful, well-made, and with care, should last a lifetime. I was amazed at the prices, in a good way. I just wish I had somewhere to put one.

    I stumbled on this shop while walking around the city. It absolutely has unique items that I didn't see anywhere else in Granada. It was a bit pricey and they don't except AMEX (hate foreign exchange fees with Visa).

    A must do activity while here. It works out around $10 per person for a two hour tour of the city. The driver will stop anywhere on the tour for you to take photographs etc. The driver we had was very friendly and quite knowledgeable on the history of the city. His broken English was quite good compared to our Spanish (not).
