Like in any tropical area, the number of bugs and insects in Granada, Nicaragua, vary depending on the season. Sometimes the transition between the heat and the rain produces a lot of flies and mosquitoes. If you live in a country where there is a lot of vegetation, you might have some mosquito trouble depending on the season. If you live in Granada, yes, there are mosquitoes but if you don’t live close to the lake then it’s much better. If you live too close to the lake then you’ll have problems with mosquitoes. I live about ten blocks away from the lake and we’re okay.
Nicaragua is a tropical country so there are mosquitoes but if you follow basic rules like keeping your house clean and not have stagnant water sitting around, you’re going to be okay. It’s also a good idea to fumigate your house once or twice a year, especially if you live in a colonial home, because there is a lot of wood. The adobe walls are also the perfect environment for mosquitoes.
