There has been an expatriate community in Granada for a long time, but the Nicaraguan city is currently more popular with foreigners than ever.
It is a relatively cheap place to buy property and to live, as well as the charm associated with towns dating back to the colonial period.
There is a pretty plaza near to Calle la Calzada, which boasts a large number of attractive cafes, restaurants and bars, making it perfect for enjoying the Central American sunshine.
Granada is well linked to other cities in the country, such as the capital Managua, which can be useful, but it is much nicer to live in the colonial city than the bustling alternative.
The growing expat community has set up a number of businesses in Granada which serve locals, tourists and fellow expats, such as organic food shops, yoga studios, restaurants and real estate agents.
Not far away is the countryside where you'll find Lake Nicaragua, around which there are plenty of wonderful places to visit, making Granada a great city to live in.
