Granada, Nicaragua Guadalupe Church – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living
Granada is one of the safest cities in the whole country of Nicaragua.
 
When it rains in Nicaragua, the cities of Managua, Masaya, Leon, and many others get flooded.  The good thing about Granada is that it has three deep natural ravines that drain the city’s water to the lake.
 
You can feel earthquakes in Granada but the epicenters tend to be in Managua, Masaya, or close to Lake Apoyo.  Consider this: houses and other buildings that were built in the 1600s through the 1800s in Granada are still standing.  If there were strong earthquakes from the time they were built until now, they would have been destroyed.
 
Most of the hurricanes hit the Atlantic side of Nicaragua, but there are some Pacific hurricanes as well.  Most of them will hit towards the north of Nicaragua, not Granada.  I have lived in Nicaragua my whole life and I am not aware of hurricanes doing damage Granada.
 
We have active volcanoes in Nicaragua and have had issues before, recently in Leon, Masaya and Ometepe.

I don't think there is anywhere on earth that can avoid natural disasters and like most places, Granada, Nicaragua has its share. 
 
One of the most common natural events are earthquakes. Most are not strong but we do experience them from time to time. We also have active volcanoes which sometimes spew ash into the air. Hurricanes, I am happy to say, are not common in Nicaragua. Flooding will happen in rural areas where there is not adequate drainage. 
 
May through November is considered our "rainy" season. This is not to say it rains 24-7 but it does rain most days for a short period of time. During this time you may see a few "flash" floods but the water dissipates very rapidly so it does not cause much more than an inconvenience.
Of course, with all the rain comes lots of green trees, plants and grass so it is more aptly called the "green" season.
