There is a cloudforest side of the volcano and the other side is drier with different vegetation. If you walk towards the lake side of it you will have a great view of the islands that used to be up there where you stand. Exhilarating...

Every minute you look to Mombacho the clouds are changing. I took so many pictures, because it is breathtaking! I think you can go up to the cloud forest, if you have time!

The walk is not difficult but tests you. The views are amazing at the top. I would suggest not to descend in to the summit, the earth gives way with every step , and the way out is back at the top of the volcano

You can really appreciate this volcano from the lake Nicaragua in the boat trip. It is quite majestic and it really blends with overall with beautiful Granada

Overlooks Granada. Compared to some of the other stratovolcanoes in Central America, rather ho hum. The Granadians have certainly made it into an expensive tourist destination. There is an unusual forest on its slopes that did not visit.

You can do Mombacho Volcano for a fraction of the operaters price. Go to the bus stop for the yellow chicken busses in front of the big cemetary in the citys south/west corner and take any bus going south. Tell the bus staff that you...More

You can definitely do it on your own! a tour guide is only required for the 2 longer hikes. You can do the basic 1-2 hour loop on your own.

You can contact Cafe Las Flores directly to reserve the zip line tour. It is fabulous. We have visited several times and they are very profesional and safety minded. Highly recommended.

Hi, There is only one crater you can do on your own. The other 2 offered by the park which you must do with a guide are El Tigrillo & Puma. We did EL Tigrillo. The lady we stayed with told us that the Puma one didn't go to... More
