I’m not sure why a guide is needed. It was an ok 3:30 hours to the top. The most difficult thing is the slippery black ash you have to walk up. View was good half way but clouds from there on up. Better to go on an afternoon once the morning haze has dispersed. If you go solo it is 20 USD for the guide and 100 NIO entry fee. If there are two or more then it is 15 USD each.

My girlfriend and I booked a hike with Lassero (+50558403700) who was a funny and super chilled guy. This was his 241st time climbing the volcano!! His English was brilliant and it felt like we were good friends by the time we reached the bottom.

We were lucky enough to spot a Boa Constrictor on the way up which was definitely a highlight.

I’ll be honest - this hike is not for the faint hearted. It is physically and mentally challenging, and at times felt dangerous. My girlfriend runs half marathons regularly and I’m a personal trainer - but this is probably the hardest thing we have both done.

Fortunately, the confident and calm Lassero installed us with tonnes of confidence, we should highly recommend him.

We had a group of three and went with a guide named Lazaro who has a ton of experience (He’s hiked to the top of Concepcion over 300 times!). He was extremely professional, polite, fun, and hilarious. He made us feel very safe the entire time and I wouldn’t have wanted to do the hike without him. We felt extra safe because he’s a certified guide and has done the hike so many times. His number is +505 5840 3700. His prices were also very fair! I would definitely recommend Lazaro to any of my friends or family.

I highly recommend this hike! It was beautiful. My girlfriend and I made it up and down in about 6-7 hours. You have to take a guide and can be fined if found without one. We did not think the risk was worth it and hired a guide. Our guide Danilo was great! His whatsapp contact info is 50583647211. I would highly recommend him.

What a beautiful hike, incredible views if the clouds clear off. It took us 8 hours (taking several breaks on the ascent). Saw many birds, howler monkeys and plenty of cool flora, which Lazaro was able to identify and speak about. Weather at the base was hot/sunny and while it was cool/windy in the top half, we did get a bit of rain on our way down so be prepared.

Lazaro(+505 5840 3700) was the perfect guide, he's knowledgeable, accommodating, funny and has great English.

If you're near ometepe island and are up for a challenge, I highly suggest this hike. Just don't plan anything too difficult the next day.

Overall a fantastic Ometepe experience. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an adventure. It’s not an easy hike by any means, but if you’re fit and willing to put in the work it’s well worth it. Highly recommend a guide (it’s mandatory) to help you navigate the terrain and show you the ropes. We hiked with Jose (number is 88574810) who was incredible. Very experienced, had a ton of knowledge to share, and kept us safe the entire time.

It's been two days since I hiked and I'm still sore on my quads, and I'm an athlete and a mountaineer. Don't underestimate the trek! Only for those who love hiking. Beautiful jungle forest with monkeys followed by steep volcànic slope.

We were hiking Concepcion with a local guide, Dimas. He was recommended by Casa Istiam Hostel and we have only superlatives to say about him. First of all - everything exactly on time and as agreed. Secondly - he is English speaking person with a great knowledge of local flora and fauna. He showed us a lot of plants and animals during the hike. Concepcion vulcano is a challenge 🌋 and you need a really experienced guide.

We were a small group for the tour to the lookout. Our guide gave us all the time we needed that we could enjoy the wildlife and the surrounding nature. It was a great experience with howler monkeys, snakes and various birds. It was recognizable that our guide appreciates the nature at it's fullest.

We hiked Volcan Concepcion with the guide, Lazaro (got in contact with Lazaro from our awesome hostel Hospedaje Soma). We had a really fun day and Lazaro provided us confidence during the hike and kept us happy during the 8 hours we went on.

After 1000 meters of elevation we reached a lookout point and this view was just surreal. I am putting 4/5 only since it was cloudy from the very top so we could not look down into the crater…hopefully you are not fortunate.
Some people says “harder than expected”. Well not for me, definitely manageable. Sure we exercise a lot but still.. don’t get second thoughts from the other reviews :)

Can really recommend this hike and also try to hookup with Lazaro!! +505 5840 3700
