Chicken bus to Granada
Stayed at Hostel San Angel for $10 night with private room, bath, breakfast & wifi.  Spent one day walking around to see all of the churches (you can limb the bell tower for a great view of the city, lake and volcano.  Did the boat tour of Las Isletas (365 small islands around Granada on Lake Nica) for $12 per person.  You can find guides in the central park to take you. Took the local bus ($.30) to Mombacho Volcano, entry and trans to the top is $12.  You can hike around the crater, see steam holes and lots of interesting plants.  Guides are $5 extra.  Took the local bus ($.30) to Masaya to shop in the markets.  The old market is nicer but a bit more expensive than the new market.  Spent the day at Hotel Spa Granada, $10 massage or facial also gets you the use of their pool.  They also serve good Mojitos.   Comida Tipica on La Calzada is the best for Nica food, with tables on the sidewalk.  Tried the enchiladas, tacos, chancho con yucca.  Pupusawa on Calle Atravesada is great for quick Salvadoran food.  Kelly's Bar and Zoom Bar are great for meeting expat locals.
