We were told this is the 5th largest volcano in Central America. We took a taxi from Erick Tours in Granada with tour guide Alberto. We left at 8:00 am. Getting to the top required taking a military ATV! We stopped at the visitor center at the top where Alberto thoroughly explained the geology, ecology, biology and history of Mombacho... More

Up close and personal to the volcano. It's a challenging hike unless you catch one of the big green trucks. Plenty of wildlife and fauna.

Mombacho is a great destination. The Zip line is a must! My cousin went up with her 3 year old girl and they had a blast. We had children ranging in age from 3 yo to 18. The little ones go tandem with the guides who are professional and take great care of them. Don't miss it!

Mombacho is a lovely place to visit if you are in Nicaragua and spending a few days in Granada. It is an amazing ride up to the national park with old army trucks or for the brave of heart the hike up the small and crooked road leading to the top. The hike once you are up there, if you... More

We walked the Puma Trail which was excellent and quite challenging. Our guides were very knowledgable. We had lunch in the cafe Flores which was tasty but cooked in Nica time! We also did the zip lines which were excellent fun and we had wonderful views of howler monkeys at the end.

Mombacho is an impressive figure looming over Granada to the south, often ringed with clouds but sometimes amazingly clear. Head up to the much cooler cloud forest and take a walk around the crater trail (1.5 hours), or with a guide there are 2 longer options. Good views of Granada and towards Laguna de Apoyo. Possily see monkeys and sloth.

Did the shorter trail, almost three hours in a rainy cloud forest. Still enjoyed it. Great views when the weather allowed it. monkeys, sloths, probably more wildlife that we did not see because of the rain. Also great exercise. One climb was straight up wood and rock stairs made slippery by the rain, hanging on to ropes during the climb... More

Very informative hike, unfortunately foggy, heard lots of monkeys, never saw any, worth the day if sunny and combined with the zip line a fun day for families
