My friends are coming for a week and a half to Granada. And besides taking them to the volcanos and the islands. Also thinking of the zoo and the circus. Where else can I take them to do that fun? They are adventurous, and are not the walking type to look at stores or restaurants type. They could also care less about the drinking and eating at the calzada. Thanks
