Mombacho Volcano National Preserve, Granada
(4.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Mombacho Volcano National Preserve and other attractions that appeal to you using our Granada vacation builder.
