Telica Volcano, Leon
(4.7/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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 itinerary builder.

  • The télica was our first volcano, mounted with a bit of rain a lot of fog, but when even a very good experience to see this crack at the top is impressive. Unfortunately we have not seen the lava but no regrets

  • Here you can see lava with your own eyes. An amazing experience. I recommend you to bring some red wine to share while watching the sun sets before you go up to see the lava when its dark. 
  • We did the full moon hike with Quetzaltrekkers and the hike was worth every step! The crater is massive and beautiful! we saw and heard the lava which was awesome! Highlly recommend!
