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

We were fortunate to be able to visit Mombacho. A beautiful thriving jungle on a volcano. While there we were able to go zip lining!

We did the zip line through the rain forest canopy! Felt very safe and secure with guides. They were professional and took safety very seriously. Our guide Mario even took great photos/videos throughout our ride! After zip line we took a pretty rigorous hike through rainforest to top of volcano for beautiful views of Granada and Lake Nicaragua. Our guide... More

A must do when you are in Granada. You cann't have sight into a volcano at many places. We arranged in at Erick's travel agency. Good price $20p.p. The market in Masaya is in the price included. Tierra tour charges $25 but no market. We went on a monday evening and it was not busy on the entrance road to... More

Unless you plan to see the sights zipping up and down a wire, which I could not do because of the torque on lower back and shoulders, there is not much to see at this time of the year.

This national park is a great place to relax and take a hike in offering 1.5 to 3.5 hour hikes that are easy to moderate in difficulty. Even ran into several people in their late 70s doing this hike. Views of Granada and neighboring mountains are impressive. Definitely in the top 5 places to visit in Nicaragua.

First of all--sorry for losing it on the Tarzan swing. I'm really scared of heights. I'll get that out of the way first. REALLY SCARED. If I can do this, ANYONE can do it (although, the rappel at the end was my absolute favorite part and I could have done that all day). That said, I booked my 16 year... More

So we cheated just a bit. We opted for the xpress tour where they drive you up most of the mountain and you hike the last hour and a half. We didn't regret it. We still got to see amazing views and lots of monkeys. Oscar was our guide and he was great. Shared a lot of knowledge and had... More

Beautiful cloud forest and also cool to get up above the city, but overall kinda meh. Especially if you do the Puma trail you end up looking at your feet the entire time. Definitely cool to see, but if you have a limited amount of time in Granada you wouldn't be missing much by skipping it.

Took the truck ride up, $20, and then the short hike. It was a cloudy morning so no views but an interesting walk. Wish I had taken the longer Puma trail hike as there would have been more to see, even on a cloudy day. Worth paying for a guide....
