A tour for those with a sense of adventure; hike on one of Nicaragua’s most prominent volcanoes.
Visiting the Mombacho Volcano, with its exuberant rainforest and unrivalled views, is a spectacular experience. As you reach the base of the Mombacho, transfer to a 4x4 truck for the ascent to the Volcano peak at 3,936 feet.
Once you reach the summit, commence your walk of the ‘crater trail’, a medium difficult walk around one of the Mombacho’s four craters, which will take approximately 1½ hours. Learn about this unique ecosystem, which consists of several cool climates, many endemic species, 90 different types of orchids, steaming fumaroles and fascinating landscapes.
At the end of your walk, the truck will take you back to the base of the Volcano. Travel into Granada where a delicious luncheon will be served, before the return drive to San Juan Del Sur.

There is approximately 2½ hours of walking; please wear footwear suitable for hiking over rough, uneven and wet ground.

The peak of the Volcano is approximately 3,936 feet; the temperature will be cool, humidity will be high and it may be windy. Please dress accordingly.
