Trip Planner: Central America / Nicaragua / Granada Department / Granada / Mombacho Volcano National Preserve
Hike to the gaping crater of Mombacho Volcano National Preserve, a dormant volcano offering spectacular views over Lake Nicaragua and Granada. Two trails navigate their way to the summit, one far more challenging the other, with almost constant 45 degree ascents and descents. You can only take this more difficult trail with a guide, but you'll be rewarded for your efforts with views of the dwarf forest. You should, however, consider taking a guide regardless of which trail you choose, as you'll learn more about the geology and wildlife of the reserve. Be sure to stop in the cafe on the volcano and sample the local coffee, and bring sturdy boots and plenty of water for the journey.

They were always willing to help and explain things in the area. I recommend
I was scared on the way up, very steep to get there. So beautiful once you get there. The path of the excursion is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Friendly staff
Great, great trail to hike here. Some people took a bus... if one has the stamina it is worth it. At the top there is even more trails and natural gases arising out of the ground.
