We've visited this bookstore many times. Our kids were drenched in the rain once and we bought shirts from there. We bought a cool bird guide another time. This time we went back just to get my husband another shirt because they fit so well. I love the selection of books as well.

What a great find! It is not Easy to find good English language bookstores. This one has a great selection of interesting books including many Nicaraguan writers and other Latin American greats in English and Spanish. I found a book on Nicaragua called The Jaguar Smile by Salman Rushdie that I never knew he had written.

Visit the shop several times during my stay in Granada and it is worth a visit. It is more or less the only bookshop in the city so you are quite lost if you can not find your books here. The selection is not that big, but fair enough and so are the prices. The owner are great and if... More

This was kind of a surprise find, but we are glad we did. The owner Troy was fun to chat with about Granada. The bookstore has a great variety of items. We were honestly suprised to find this. If your looking for some reading material or need a Spanish to English book stop in.

Lucha Libro has an incredible selection of books about Nicaragua and by Nicaraguan writers in English and Spanish. You will find everything you could possibly want on the topic, and some things you didn't even know existed. There are also many books about Latin America/by Latin American writers, both fiction and non-fiction. In addition, you will find Spanish and English... More

Couldn't find post cards anywhere in Granada, and had promised to send them to my kids' classes. This book store had them, along with a good selection of popular English fiction in case you finish yours before you get home!

You want to find a great selection of books about and concerning Nicaragua? This is the place. Can't find it? Ask Troy and he will try to get it for you. Great selection of all types of books and being in Nicaragua, that is saying a lot.
