Hike to the gaping crater of Mombacho, 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.

We really enjoyed walking around this dormant volcano. The views of the valley below are just astonishing! The weather is much cooler up there, and we even saw some spider monkeys!

Took the shuttle bus to the top of the Volcano and did the rim trail around the opening. Excellent views of Granada, Granada Islets, Masaya Volcano and Lago Apoyo.
