The flora in Central America in general,
and in Granada, Nicaragua specifically is a lot like Hawaii. So, if you’ve ever been to Hawaii, you’ll be familiar with many of the plants; the hibiscus, the bougainvillea, the colors that one would see and hear about in Hawaii grow here in Granada, and the colors are spectacular.
The word “sacuanjoche”, which is the name of our school, is also the name of the national flower of Nicaragua, and is also the same flower they make the leis out of in Hawaii, where they call it plumeria.
The flowers here in Granada, Nicaragua are absolutely incredible. Throughout this answer, I inserted pictures I just took today with my camera phone, right in my garden outside my house. You see many different colors of hibiscus that are growing here.
There are flowers and plants everywhere in Granada, in the houses, the streets, and of course, when you get out of town.
