“Interesting but could be cloudy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

To be sure, the crater and fumaroles are cool- but when my friend and I were there the longer hike was closed, so we walked about 1.5k. The volcano crater was neat, and very cool to see the steaming fumaroles - but views were largely obstructed by the cloud forest. Given the logistics of getting to the volcano and cost involved I would aim to go when you can see that it's not cloudy. Bring a layer even if its very hot in granada.

“Amazing”

The view is the greatest! Close to the city and very easy access. The lake was stunning with the Paddle boarding competition.

We did this without a guide and were still able to enjoy the trails, wildlife and views on Granada and Lake Nicaragua.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

One of my favorite things from my trip to Nicaragua was visiting the different types of volcanoes there. Mombacho is known as the cloudforest. As soon as we went up we were in the middle of clouds and significantly cooler. Our tour guide Erick was super informative and was great at pointing out all the vegetation, flowers, and wildlife.

“Mix of Adrenaline and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This tour was so much fun! The guides very focused and safety a no. 1 issue! Price was great (28.00 US dollars) considering we had 3 guides for ourselves and no extra fees for pictures etc. (they had a guide take your camera and film you as you go)---Lots of fun and definetly worth the money!
