Condos Hotel Xalteva is a small boutique condo hotel in Granada.

This truly is an oasis within the city and a great home base from which to explore all of Nicaragua. The Pacific coast, mountain coffee plantations and magnificent volcanoes are all within 1 1/2 hours drive, but the colonial city of Granada is the main attraction. On the edge of Lake Nicaragua and in the shadow of Mombacho volcano, Granada is a romantic city of colorful colonial homes and churches. Founded in 1524, Granada enjoys the distinction of being the oldest colonial city in the Americas. This relaxed and mellow city has one of the most pleasant central plazas in Latin America which is surrounded by 16th-century colonial buildings, great restaurants, museums and other entertainment. Granada is a great place to base and explore most of Nicaragua's popular highlights.
Granada shares the shoreline with Lake Nicaragua, the 10th-largest freshwater lake in the world. The lake has great sport-fishing in and around over 360 tiny tropical islands (Isletas) that are richly covered with vegetation. The islands of Lake Nicaragua were created hundreds of years ago when the volcano Mombacho exploded. Today, you can explore this extinct volcano along trails in the cloud forest. You'll see more varieties of orchids than just about anywhere else in the world and all kinds of wildlife, including 170 counted species of birds and blue morpho butterflies. You can also take a canopy tour, shooting from treetop to treetop on harnessed zip-lines.
Near Granada you'll find Lake Apoyo. This crater lake, formed over 21,000 years ago when a volcano erupted, is the largest crater lake in the country and one of the most beautiful. The views from the top stretch over the hillsides, taking in the blue waters below. Because of its elevation, Lake Apoyo is generally five degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler than Granada, just 15 minutes away. Its pristine water has therapeutic qualities, thanks to the sulfur and other minerals, and the temperature is 85 degrees all year long. It is in a Nicaraguan natural reserve and a proposed UNESCO World Heritage site.
Masaya's Craft Market and the Masaya Volcano National Park. Nearby Masaya is home to Nicaragua's best craft market, offering just about anything that's hand-crafted in the country—ceramics, leather goods, iron work, hammocks, jewelry, rocking chairs, masks, clothing . . . you name it.
There are five active volcanoes at nearby Masaya Volcano National Park offering the best volcano viewing in Central and North America. It's the only place in the region where you can see hot magma rising from the depths of the Earth—and you can drive right to the top!
If you need a smaller unit, contact us for availability of the one bedroom unit or a hotel type room with private bath.

About The Owner
The consistent mid 80's temperatures brings us regularly to Granada from our home of 50+ years in Vermont.
The step back in time and reliving history is most attractive and comforting for us.

What makes this condo unique
We find comfort in the location being just a bit away from the city center noise and activity, yet an easy walk. The property is well staffed and most speak some English. Again...why stay in a hotel when for the same price have a full kitchen, living and dining areas. Private, but not exclusive. One of a kind in Granada.The
