I missed a posting from Leon and Granada. While I have time in San Juan del Sur, I thought I'd add it. Both cities have a large cathedral in a central park area where everyone seemed to
congregate. This seems consistent with
nearly every town we visit in Central America. Leon is not much of a destination for travelers, but seemed to be a nice place to see for a day or two. The Cathedral is one of the largest in Central America. There is also a nice art gallery, with abundant Spanish colonial pieces and a few pieces from other periods. Granada is a much bigger city. It reminded us of Antigua, Guatemala. Unfortunately it was much dirtier than Antigua. There is a walking mall type street that is cleaned up with nice restaurants and bars, the rest of the surrounding areas is a maze of street side markets. The markets were shoulder to shoulder with people. We had a great time wondering through them.
