I have two and a half free days in Granada, and would love to see some of the forests and fauna nearby. I love seeing volcanoes and the like, but I'm really most interested in animals, so any advice you have about which of these is best for bird/fauna spotting would be great. I'm particularly keen to see toucans, if that helps!
Mombacho/Las Isletas - seems as though there are several companies doing combination day trips of hiking and kayaking, which I like. Or there is the option to do the longer Puma trail, which seems as though it might be better for fauna/birdwatching?
Masaya volcano / Lago de Apoyo
Montibelli - sounds like it might be tricky to make this into a day trip, but it also sounds like it's fantastic for birdwatching - anybody been on a tour/with a guide here for a day trip from Granada?
El Chocoyero - would love to hear whether it's worth the effort.
Anyway, any advice at all would be really welcome. My main priority is to see nature and to go hiking. I'm not super-keen on really big tour groups either, so any advice you have about companies would be helpful too!
Thanks so much, and sorry for all the questions!
