Maderas Volcano, Isla de Ometepe

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Despite being the smaller of two volcanoes that make up the island of Ometepe, Maderas Volcano presents a challenging yet rewarding trek. You will need a guide to climb the volcano, no matter what your fitness level, as there are a confusing number of paths at the top. Along the way, the trail can turn muddy even during the dry season, so wear sturdy hiking shoes. Experience one of the few cloud forests, a place where rich plant and wildlife flourish in high levels of humidity. Once at the top, descend into the crater where a cold lagoon is often covered by mist.
