Mombacho Volcano National Preserve, Granada

4.1
#2 of 6 in Parks in Granada
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.

  • We have come up with our own car to make the trip to the puma and we have become without it since I think that they have attempted us scam at the reception, asked us an exorbitant price and taking into account that the masaya volcano offers you a night route very pleasant h emos decided save us is. Price for tourists at the reception: ticket per person $8 with Guide: 12 dollars rise with your car $20. Where I believe have tried to take advantage of is that of reception told us that both the Guide and the car was per person. I.e. we asked for two people: $80 by savvy will not win so none of us, I think that the real price should be for two people 48 dollars, i.e. Guide and single payment car giving the same companions that you carry in your car which already seems expensive to be an excursion...
