Telica Volcano, Leon
(4.8/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • We went on the 2D 1N Telica trek with Quetzaltrekkers. There was no one else at the spot when we went. This makes the place more special. We met one DIY couple coming down ( so it's possible as well)....  more »
  • The excursion is of medium difficulty. Do it in the evening and watch the sunset is worth. Essential to climb on 4 x 4 or quad

  • One of the best experiences I have lived, even though it was a long walk I have to admit, and cold at night is very extreme though a good Campfire wouldn't be too bad, the show of shooting stars in the morning is the best including this beautiful Sunrise and volcano climbing
