The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Join Granada's Revival


5. Oddball Day

El Estadio, left, and a sailing lesson, right.   

Rent a bike from Eco Expedition Tours ($1 per hour; 201 Calle La Calzada) for the breezy ten-minute commute to Lake Cocibolca. Take a half-day lesson at the country's only sailing school, Velago Nicaragua (two hours, $50 for four people). On your way back to town, snack on a veggie-curry crêpe ($3.20) at the Nectar Café (Calle La Calzada, 505-2552-6095). If the Granada Tiburones are playing at home (ask at your hotel), get a ticket for the night game ($0.75–$2.50). Take a taxi to El Estadio Flor de Caña Roque T. Zavala (Calle La Immaculada) and be sure to go hungry the food vendors are half the point. Pair the vigorónes (yucca, chicharron, and spicy cabbage salad in a banana leaf; $1) with a cold can of Toña, and watch the next Dennis Martínez throw a no-hitter.
