I recommend this! The plants and vistas were amazing! Wear good shoes and bring a jacket. This can be a strenuous hike. I went with students and some were not prepared for the exercise. I would return. The best sloth pictures I've ever had came from here!

Amazing to see. What an experience looking into the mouth of a live volcano looking at the live burning lava! Wonderful.

My husband and I enjoyed the walk, the view, the nature and the roads. Even though I am not good with hiking, having THE TIGRILLO TRAILS hiked, was a MUST for us. The only thing we did not like is that they have a very big difference in prices for entrance for locals and for foreigners. $7 local, $20 foreigner.... More

We read in another review that we needed to use their vehicle to get to the top entrance of Mombacho, but our guide was able to get us in on our own vehicle. We had a 4x4 truck and YES, it was needed. The ride up is steep and there is only one lane but it isn't terrifying. You can't... More

We hiked the puma trail. Our guide, Fernando, was very fun and conversational. Although it was rainy and so we couldn't see anything, it was a great time.

The view from the lake of Nicaragua is amazing. The volcano had the last eruption in 1570, so its not active and you can climb up to the crater.

Myself and two friends decided to take a tour of the volcano and do the zip line canopy tour. When we arrived we were met by Tiger (Harold) our guide, and Leche our driver. As Tiger would say, our tour was Deacachimba! He a was super knowledgable about all of the local vegetation and wildlife and went out of his... More

Two beautiful craters and an amazing view of Granada. If you are not very fit I recommend taking the trucks to the top. I was fine, but one of my friends who is young (29) and not terribly out of shape had trouble with the long hike.

Great for hiking, enjoying birds, plants and views. And you can do the zip line. Book a tour, there are enough agencies. There is a good one next to the cathedral at the parc central.

Let me start this by making it clear, I'm NOT a very physically active person & I generally don't choose the most outdoorsy activities. With that said, I opted to take the bus to the top of the volcano (30min or so) instead of hike (it's super steep...and steep...so...yeah.). Once you get to the top, you have 2 options: and... More
