It was fairly easy to get to Mombacho from Granada without using a tour. I took the regular bus that leaves from the market (on the way to Rivas), and asked to be dropped off in front of the entrance of Mombacho, where you take...More

We took the chickenbus (8 Córdoba) plus a Tuktuk (30 Córdoba) from Granada to the entrance of the park. The fee to pay as a foreigner is 5 $, which is alright. But the they charge you a ridiculous 15 $ (locals pay 4 $)...More

We used a tour group for Mombacho. If you are looking for more of a great challenging day long hike, take a taxi to the entrance and hike. We drove and then took an underwhelming 1.5km stroll around the crater. Not really all that interesting....More

We drove around Mombacho and found a zip lining spot. The kids (teenagers) loved zip lining down the Volcano. The forest is incredible up there!

Anywhere from an easy 1-mile hike to something more challenging that could take several hours. If you want a longer hike, plan ahead! And remember, if it's 100 degrees at the base, it's still in the 60s or so at the top.

Travelling on a budget we weren't willing to fork out $20 each for the truck up the hill so decided we'd walk it. We were so glad we did. After reading so many horror stories about the walk we were pleasantly surprised to find that...More

We went to Mombacho for the zip line tour and it was awesome! There were plenty of monkeys and birds and the views were beautiful. In addition, they grow and roast their own coffee and you can try it and buy it in the gift...More

The trails they offer are in very good shape and well maintained. The smallest loop, which is self guided, is an easy 1 1/4 hour walk and has some great view point. I think this place is definitely worth a visit though I found the...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
