Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America








On May 23rd, 2008 I headed back to Nicaragua for another 17 day adventure in Central America. Since I usually start each trip with photos of the Florida Keys or Cuba I thought I would talk about something different this time and that is strip clubs. Why strip clubs? I have no idea but it's something I've never covered before so I figured why not. There are 6 main clubs in Managua. Elite and Solid Gold are on Carretara Masaya and I'm told the girls are incredibly beautiful. Both of these clubs are also incredibly expensive from what I'm told. The other 3 clubs are right next door to each other on the Pista de la Resistencia. There's the Cueto Club, the El Salvadorian, and another that I can't remember the name of. These 3 clubs cater to the locals and are a lot cheaper. They are also a bit more on the dangerous side. I've actually been to these 3 and made it out alive so they aren't that dangerous. The sixth and final club that I'm aware of is called the Venus night club and it's located near the airport. If you want to live on the wild side this is the place for you. It's in a bad neighborhood and it's super dangerous as well as someone gets stabbed or shot here from time to time. That concludes all I know about strip clubs in Managua...

On Saturday we got up bright and early at the crack of 10 AM. We didn't really have any plans but since we had a car I figured we might as well go do something. What we came up with was a little tour of the areas around Granada and Masaya. Since we got to Granada around lunch time we decided to find a place to have lunch. We stumbled across a street called "Calle La Calzada" that is just loaded with restaurants. I've been to Granada probably 10 times and somehow I've managed to miss the street every time I've been there. This is definately the place to go if you're looking for food in Granada.

We ended up picking a place called "The Roadhouse" for lunch. The food was good and the atmosphere's nice. Like many places in Granada it appears to be gringo owned so the menu definately caters to Americans. The french fries were probably the best I've ever had in Nicaragua...

On the way back to the car I took a little video while strolling through the park in the center of Granada...
