Telica Volcano, Leon

4.6
#3 of 7 in Parks in Leon Department
Hike to the top of the active Telica Volcano, and marvel at bubbling magma within its huge crater. The relatively strenuous route to the top leads to rewarding panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and other nearby volcanoes. Peer into the giant crater to see the red-hot magma deep below. Head up just before sunset, sit and watch the sun go down, and enjoy the glowing magma that becomes even more impressive after dark. Pack a flashlight for your journey back down, or make sure your guide can provide one. Plan to visit Telica Volcano during your Leon vacation using our convenient Leon trip site .

  • We’ve spent or 4th year anniversary watching the sunset on top of Telica. It’s an incredible not-to-be-missed experience. The one-hour hike and the one-hour bumpy ride are both totally worth it.
  • We saw lava and a beautiful sunset. The climb is easy, 45 minutes to reach the crater. Sunset is amazing and see lava was awesome. We went with the guys from Quetzaltrekkers Leon.
  • Unfortunately the weather was pretty bad when I hiked there so I didn't get to see lava but the sound of eruption is quite amazing. There is also a cave and you can see a lot of fruit bats.
  • Love hiking this volcano with Green Pathways Tours. Sunset over the Pacific and glowing lava. Great night tour
  • An excellent walk especially if is done at night where the climate is more acceptable. Being at night on the top is a unique experience because often you can see the lava inside the crater. Camping close to the crater is possible because it has a flat area and nice for this. There is an area where you can make bonfires and have a good time with friends. People have been lost in this sector and it is recommended to upload with a tourist guide to make the hike more enjoyable.
