We took the "medium" difficulty, 3 hour tour. Though the tour is rated medium difficulty, be prepared for a lot of climbing, so wear good hiking shoes. The vistas from different sides of the mountain were beautiful and let you experience the surrounding area and...More

We took the easy trail around the crater that is mostly flat with a few gentle ups and downs. It is mostly wooded with one open area at the fumeroles with views to Granada and the islets. We saw a sloth, a snake, and some...More

I love anything to do with volcanos. Mombacho is an inactive volcano whose caldera is not visible due to the growth of the rainforest. You get a very nice walk in the woods ( can be hot), stunning vistas of the country side, lake Nicaragua,...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.
