The best place to buy your present when visiting Nicaragua. Easy to reach from whatever place you are in Nicaragua. Large selection of bags and accessories. All in 1000% leather and super quality. A must visit in Nicaragua. Easy to find, right on the Calzada, main waling street.

I loved everything about Granada and can't wait to get back, but in terms of good quality souvenirs it is a little lacking. Thank goodness for Soy Nica. Beautiful, fair priced leather goods in every price range. All handmade right in Granada.

This was a must find for me when we visited Nicaragua on our day trip. If you love leather bags there is something for you here. They are genuine Nicaragua handwork! The owner is there to talk to you and answer any questions that you have. Love the bag and wallet that I chose!

It can be quite dificult to use money in Nicaragua and to buy gifts when you are there, but it is definitive not a problem here. Perfect leather shop, all locally made, actually in their workshop in connection with their shop. Very high quality in Scandinavian minimalistic design. All details are very carefully thought of. The attention in the shop... More

You will find everything you need in there. All sizes, colours and shapes. You can even get matching accesories. SOY NICA is a must if you are in Granada.

We had 1.5 days in Granada and on our stroll we stumbled onto this quaint little shop. There is literally something for everyone. From cute little wallets to really cute purses and everything in between. Everything is made onsite.

This place had a huge assortment of colorful, quality leather bags. It is pricey, but worth it. Pieces are made on site, an investment piece.

Tons of different designs in bags and wallets. Very good customer service and absolutely nobody forcing you to buy. The staff is also English... More
